Former Inter Milan goalkeeper Walter Zenga has been linked with the head coaching role at New York Red Bulls. The ex-Italy international was linked to the job by Gazzetta dello Sport because he is one coach out of a job at present who has MLS coaching experience.

49-year old Zenga has been tipped to take the job from current interim coach Richie Williams. He played with the New England Revolution from 1997 to 1999 and also coached the club in '99 before moving into other management roles around Europe.

In a playing career that spanned two decades, Zenga played Italian clubs Salernitana, Savona, Sambenedettese, Inter Milan, Sampdoria and Padova before he moved to the USA.

He has managed Brera, National Bucharest and Steaua Bucharest (both Romania), Red Star Belgrade (Serbia), Gazientepspor (Turkey), Al Ain (UAE), Dinamo Bucharest (Romania) and Catania (Italy). His last job was with Italian Serie A outfit Palermo where he was sacked in November this year.
