MOST COMMENTED

[MLS]Seeking an experienced player to address their needs in goal, the New York Red Bulls certain found in the form of Frank Rost, who played in the German Bundesliga for nearly 20 years -- most recently starting in 30 games for Hamburg during the 2010-11 season. The 38-year-old Rost will count as the club's third Designated Player.

“Frank is a very experienced goalkeeper who will provide a strong presence in between the posts for our club during our quest for a MLS title,” said Red Bulls General Manager and Sporting Director Erik Soler. “We are thrilled that he has decided to join us in the middle of our campaign and look forward to his contributions for the remainder of the season.”

Rost also played for Werder Bremen and Schalke 04.

    I hardly think the Designated Player scheme was developed so MLS clubs could obtain old foreign goalies. This DP signing will no doubt thrill soccer fans in NY/NJ and bring lots of new fans to the game. Feh!

    Great move Red Bulls, we have such a shortage of goal keepers in this country. I am sure he will really be exciting to watch.

    Great...now let's bring in 37 year old Hans-Jorg Butt to be his back up.

    RB were in trouble at the keeper spot, a change had to be made...they are still in tropuble when they field Miller and Ballouchy together and more trouble fielding Richards in midfield where he is a major liability on defense and clueless opn offense.
