Red Bulls Chasing Preki
Los Angeles Times, November 28th, 2007 5PM

MOST COMMENTED

Chicago's Juan Carlos Osorio is still top of the list, but the L.A. Times says that Red Bull has also contacted Chivas USA's Preki about the possibility of crossing over to New York. The former MLS star was named MLS Coach of the Year last season, leading Chivas to first place in the West and second overall in the race for the Supporter's Shield, awarded to D.C. United for the best record during the regular season. Preki also guided Chivas to the best record in the team's four-year history, finishing 15-7-8.

The Times understands that Preki is not Red Bull's first choice -- that man is still the Fire's Osorio, who only took over the post in June but managed to lead the beleaguered club to the Eastern Conference final. According to the report, the Bulls have been denied permission to talk to Osorio, indicating that the Colombian may be off limits. Chivas, on the other hand, allowed Preki to talk to the club during the MLS Cup final two weeks ago.  

The man who fills Bruce Arena's boots is stepping into a hot seat, indeed. The head coaching position in New York has been a revolving door since the team's inception in 1996. A series of big-name coaches like Carlos Alberto Parreira, Carlos Queiroz, Bora Milutinovic and now, Arena, have wafted in and out of the club with little to no success. Having said that, they were all paid handsomely for their failure.
