New York Red Bulls have drafted goalkeeper Ryan Meara.
With 38-year-old keeper Frank Rostâ€™s status still undetermined, the Red Bulls tabbed Meara.
â€œTodd Hoffard, our goalkeeping coach, has been following him for a long time. We think heâ€™s the best goalkeeper in the college system,â€™â€™ GM Erik Soler told the NT Post. â€œHeâ€™s big, heâ€™s strong, we need a goalie, and heâ€™s from New York. Every factor that we looked at was there, and he was the player we wanted most from the draft simply because we needed a goalkeeper.
â€œRealistically there were a bunch of others we couldnâ€™t calculate on getting, so we were very happy. We went here with a positive attitude and we got the best out of what we could get.â€™â€™
