The 33-year old Dutch winger was waived by Dallas after last season but after going to watch the Red Bulls' season opener to be a part of the Red Bull Arena unveiling, he knew that he does not want his time in the game to be up.
"I was watching the game and I caught myself a lot of times being tense," he told the New York Post. "I think that showed me that I'm just not ready to say I'm done. It's not up to me, I guess. It's up to the people in charge at this point whether they want to offer me anything or not."
van den Bergh has been linked with a return to New York but says he has not held talks with anybody involved with the club in regards to a contract.
