It has been denied by the New York Red Bulls that they have any plans of appointing the France legend and one of club’s ex players Thierry Henry as the head coach of the team.

Chris Armas, who is in charge of the Red Bulls at the moment, has not been able to fetch the desired results consistently in the ongoing season.  They had secured the first position in the Eastern Conference standings the previous year, but this time around, they are not positioned that high in the standings half way through the season.

Mexico Coach Already Has World Cup Squad in Mind

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio says that he is aware the players who will be selected for the World Cup 2018 in Russia. Mexico are not expected to make much of an impact in the World Cup due to the colder climate. The national team had the best opportunity to make a huge impact in the previous World Cup in Brazil but the team were once again eliminated in the round of 16. Mexico have faced an exit at exactly this point in the World Cup since 1994. The last time they went beyond this stage was in 1986 when Mexico reached the quarter-finals of the World Cup, which was held on home soil.

Osorio was brought to the national team after stints with the likes of São Paulo andAtlético Nacional. He came to the national team in October 2015 and will be experiencing World Cup for the first time. The 56-year-old has been able to succeed in major cup competitions like the Primera A, and he came close to winning the Copa Sudamericana in 2014. However, the World Cup is a completely different animal with the squad selection having to play a major role in the success of a team. Mexico have to take a well-balanced squad that can handle the rigours of frequent matches in a short span of time.

A lot of European stars are more open minded about playing the American top flight in recent years. The competitive wages and fast paced developments of the league has helped as well. Aside European stars, many others from other regions are open to joining the MLS as well.

There are strong indications that Australian James Troisi might move to the MLS. After the lapse of his deal with Melbourne Victory, Troisi wants to explore the US. He is reportedly in New York with the hope of getting a decent side to join. His confederation Cup showing would be a plus for the 29-year old forward.

Ligue 1 star Andre-Pierre Gignac is another one poised to move to the MLS but Los Angeles Galaxy is wary of the high price tag. His transfer fee and salary were way above what the Galaxy directors could manage. (more…)

Chinese league have been dominating the transfer market; splashing huge sums of money on players.

This has been a source of serious concerns to the MLS as they continue to lose bid for players to the Chinese.

Recall that earlier last year, Don Garber, Major League Soccer commissioner, had opined that the Chinese would not be able to sustain such high spending on players for long and will eventually drop their extravagant offers; therefore he didn’t consider their actions as threatening to the MLS.

Unfortunately for him and the American league, the Chinese league has not lowered the intensity of their spending. In fact they have increased it over the course of two transfer windows. This fact is evident in the latest signing of Brazilian star Oscar and a mouthwatering offer for Carlos Tevez.

The latest player to be hijacked by the Chinese is Paraguayan striker Oscar Romero. Romero was previously handed a deal by Atlanta United, one of MLS team. The transfer was set at $8.5 million an amount considered to be pretty high by MLS standard. (more…)
