Backe feels Henry, Cooper and Le Toux can form a dangerous trio for NYRB

New York Red Bull head coach Hans Backe believes he can bring new signing Sebastien Le Toux into an attacking three alongside Thierry Henry and Kenny Cooper.

The Frenchman was traded to the Red Bulls from Vancouver Whitecaps on Friday, in exchange for Dane Richards, and after scoring on debut to help the club to a 2-2 draw with Seattle Sounders, Backe believes the trio can form a dangerous threat up front.

“I think with another balance in midfield (with) the other three guys, to play Thierry behind these two, I think it’s possible,” said Backe.

“But you need more box-to-box players around Thierry. Then I think it’s definitely a possibility.”
