NYRB coach Backe backs Coundoul despite last start blunder

New York Red Bulls head coach Hans Backe expects goalkeeper Bouna Coundoul to bounce back from his last start blunder.

The 28-year old Senegalese shot-stopper gifted Chivas USA one of their goals in the 2-0 loss last weekend but Backe has faith that it was just a blip and his performance against FC Dallas this Saturday would be much-improved.

“He will play Saturday,” Backe said. “Of course it’s unlucky when you have an individual mistake like that, but in a way you have to look at the first two games too and he made some key saves and played very well, too, clean sheets.”
