Osorio Sets Red Bull Agenda

MOST COMMENTED

USSoccerPlayers' Clemente Lisi sat down with New York Red Bulls coach Juan Carlos Osorio, who talked about the MLS SuperDraft, his successful season with Chicago last year, and his expectations for the coming year.

First of all, Osorio said he was very pleased with the acquisition of 22-year-old defender Eric Brunner, whom he described as being big and having good ball distribution. "I really think he has a shot of being a starter for us this season," the Colombian said. He adds that MLS in general has improved "greatly" since he was an assistant with the MetroStars in 2000.

As for his success with Chicago last year, Osorio says it came down to better and more organized defending. "It's not a coincidence that in the last 10 games of the regular season, we conceded only eight goals," he said. "What we did was defend properly as a team and scored one or two goals, which was just enough to win games. Teams like Chelsea have been doing that for years and with much success." With the Red Bulls, Osorio said he plans to instill a "winning mentality" in the team, and to make sure his players are "physically strong" and "tactically astute."
