New York Red Bulls GM Erik Soler has thrown down the gauntlet to his players.

Soler says they have the team good enough to win the MLS Cup this season.

"We have all the players we need to win the championship. There's no doubt about it," said Soler. "In my opinion, if you look at all the teams and try to figure out the top four teams roster-wise, we're in the top four.

"I think it's more about trying to get the stability. Now we have all the players back. We can have the same people playing more number of games and I think that will help. I know that [head coach Hans Backe] is taking this really, really serious."
