New York Red Bulls GM Erik Soler says they're sticking with Rafa Marquez.

The form of the ex-Barcelona and AS Monaco defender has been questioned this season.

Soler told the New York Post: It's always like this: "We have to think about big picture. Sometimes we're disappointed with a player, sometimes we're happy. We've had no discussions with Rafa or anyone else about moving him. He did a great job in Philadelphia. He picked up Brandon Barklage for the first goal. He picked out Kenny Cooper for the (third) goal.

"He turned that game around for us. We hope he can continue to do it, at this moment especially with Teemu Tainio unfortunately being out at least a couple months. There's no way we're doing anything with Rafa. We're going to stick with him and we still believe he will produce."
