Angelino finds UCL Opponents Man United to be Average

RB Leipzig wing back Angelino has experience with Manchester United, the first opponent in the 2020-21 UEFA Champions League group stage and spoke about the former dominant EPL team in detail with RBLive.

"What I've seen from Manchester United thus far," said Angelino. "Sometimes their world class, others they're average. We don't have to hide."

Leipzig made a name for themselves last season with major wins over both Tottenham Hotspur and Atletico Madrid. Their magical run came to an end in the semi-final where they lost to Paris St. Germain. Still, their arrival on such a stage has put the world's game on notice and let the bigger powers know that there is a fearless team on the rise.

Over the past five years, Leipzig has become a prime destination for young players who haven't gotten time on major teams. Angelino is just one example, having joined from Manchester City where he could barely make the bench. With the East German club he has shown his ability and now is one of the hottest players in his position anywhere in the world.

"Both are extremely concerned with football," said Angelino when talking about his former manager Pep Guardiola and current one Julian Nagelsmann. "The coach trusts me. I can feel that and give it back with performance, and his (Nagelsmann) style of play matches my qualities exactly."

Leipzig had the last week off due to the international break but the Bundesliga kicks off again this weekend. Angelino and club will play Augsburg. Currently they sit atop the Bundesliga and will want to continue the momentum before playing Manchester United in two weeks.

The Unfortunate Vanzeir, Struber incident that has upset the fans, and league

photo by Matt Kremkau by Dan Feuerstein The Worst moment in New York Red Bulls/MetroStars history has finally come to a temporary conclusion. When I say a temporary conclusion, it means that Major League Soccer hasn't informed the masses of the punishment that would fit this horrible situation that graced the pitch at Red Bull Arena on Saturday night, April 8th against the San Jose Earthquakes. Here is the timeline of events that happened in that match as we try to piece together what all of us saw and how it all got started from beginning to end. In the 54th minute, another horrific challenge against the New York Red Bulls struck again as Judson delivered a two-footed mid-air challenge to the chest of Dylan Nealis and sadly all it got was a yellow card, Dylan's brother, and Captain Sean Nealis protested very loudly and earned his booking for his dissent of the referee's decision. While the arguments continued between Sean Nealis & Earthquakes representative Jeremy Ebob

Rumor: Dru Yearwood to be Traded to Nashville SC

photo by Matt Kremkau by Anthony J. Merced More trade rumors are circulating as Red Bulls midfielder Dru Yearwood is linked to a move to Nashville SC according to Tom Bogert of the Athletic . What Red Bull will receive for such a trade remains to be seen. However expectations are that the move will be finalized by the end of next week. Yearwood joined New York in 2020 from Brentford in England. Along the way he has made 86 appearances for the club, including 55 starts. In 2021 and 2022 he made 18 starts, scoring three goals and three assists, his total output for the club in Major League Soccer.  In 2023 Yearwood found his position in the club to vary greatly. At times he played in a defensive midfield role next to Frankie Amaya and other times higher up the field, almost as a second forward. After the departure of Cristian Casseres Jr. earlier in the year, it appeared as if Yearwood's minutes would increase. However Daniel Edelman stepped into the role, relegating Yearwood to more
