NY stock up, while TFC get top talent
The New York Red Bulls entered Tuesday’s Supplemental Draft badly in need of depth everywhere but up top. And that’s exactly what they came away with.
They took local product Ryan Clark from Monmouth (above), who can play left back and left midfield, with the first pick of the Supplemental Draft, then Boston University’s Michael Bustamante later in the first round, and added Providence winger Marc Cintron in the second round. All three had made regular appearances in mock SuperDrafts from last week, and all three have a real shot at sticking on a team that’s spread thin in the midst of an offseason overhaul.
They also added defensive midfielders Ben Fisk (Washington) and Andrew Ribiero (Creighton), both of whom put in uneven performances at the MLS Combine on the heels of stellar college careers, as well as central midfielder Stephane Diop of Connecticut.
