MLS CUP: WHAT IS MEANS TO ME – BOUNA COUNDOUL

Today, NewYorkRedBulls.com releases the first in a series of videos ahead of the home leg of the team’s Eastern Conference Semifinal series with the San Jose Earthquakes.  As the Red Bulls begin their quest for MLS Cup, we explore some of the great stories that the team presents, in their own words.

We begin the MLS Cup: What is means to me series with goalkeeper Bouna Coundoul.  Though born in Senegal, Coundoul starred at Martin Luther King High School, a legendary New York City program, during his prep years, earning All-New York City Goalkeeper and Player of the Year honors in 2000 before playing his collegiate soccer at the University at Albany.  Coundoul holds his local roots dear, particularly as he enters his first-ever MLS Postseason, wishing for nothing more than to bring a championship home to Red Bull Arena.

In the coming days, check back for more videos in this series.

    The Red Bulls better get a new Goal Keeper! Since it seems that JPA won’t be re-signed for next season, with the money saved there, the Red Bulls need to upgrade their GK position. I still think Cepero is a better keeper, he just had a horrible defense and Osorio’s poor roster selections every week. As a scout (The Scouting Network, in Birmingham UK), I have no interest in a goal keeper that can’t take a goal kick at the professional level. Till then I can’t take Bouna Coundoul as a serious goal keeper. He may have great reflexes and agility but he makes to many mental mistakes. I have seen to many soft goals and errors that lead to goals from Coundol. Time for a change next season. Till then I hope he plays great in the playoffs. GO RED BULLS!
