NYRB hoping that ex-Barcelona ace Marquez keeps his nose clean

Rafael Marquez is again available for New York Red Bulls after serving a three-game ban but the club wants that to be the end of it.

The Mexican defender has missed more games than he has played this season due to suspension and general manager Erik Soler is desperate for him to string a number of games together without getting himself into trouble.

"Any player that gets suspensions, we'll speak with him of course; so Hans (Backe, coach) and I sat down with him,'' said Soler.

"We all know and he knows that with his relevance for the team we need him on the pitch all the time. We had a good conversation about that.

"I believe Rafa will be an important player for us this season, and as long as he's on the field he'll do that. But he has to be able to stay on the pitch."
