Joel Lindpere signed by New York Red Bulls

He has signed a 2-year contract. During the last couple of years the 28-year old midfielder played in Norwegian Premier League but now he becomes the first Estonian in Major League Soccer.

The reason of this rather surprising move is Red Bulls Danish manager Hans Backe who has good knowledge of Estonian players having previously coached Andres Oper in Aalborg and urmas Rooba in Copenhagen.

well, the fanbase of Red Bull NY isn't exactly thrilled with his motives of coming to the States

or maybe they are reading too much into his quotes

eh, but it seems like this will be a vacation to him, and you must know older foreign signings rarely shine in the MLS

What he meant was that he now has the opportunity to travel all across USA and play football in exciting cities, as opposed to the various Norwegian fisherman's villages he's used to.

He'll be very motivated as this is a great chance for him but I can't see him becoming a success to be honest. He has no real strengths in this level except for his work rate maybe. Backup player probably.

He has been a positive addition to the Red Bulls. His work rate is there and he has produced some good defense and offense for the team. He is far better than the Venezuelan he replaced.

He was selected as the Red Bulls most valuable player of the season. :thmbup:

Not bad, considering he had Thierry Henry, Juan Pablo Angel and Rafa Marquez among his teammates.

I guess I was wrong about him...or maybe I was overrating the level of play in the MLS. Although he himself also said he could've never expected having such a season.

Henry and Marquez only played the second half of the season and Angel somewhat underachieved and he is now gone. I kind of underestimated him but he was definetely one of the better players on the team along with young defender Tim Ream who will probably play in Europe in 2-3 seasons if he continues to develop. Joel was very versitile, at times even playing as a winger

There were rumors an EPL club was interested in him

he was very critical of his manager and the club in his last interview...
