Struber: Trophies are the Goal but Will Need Time

New York Red Bulls are not adhering to the notion that they are development team without aspirations of winning. Head coach Gerhard Struber spoke about that with the media on Friday, cementing the idea that the Red Bulls are focused on winning trophies and not just developing young talent.

"What we have in our long term goals is clear," said Struber. "We will bring trophies. This is not only my goal, this is the goal from the whole club. For that I think we need time for integration, we need time for development and in the end we have the right to speak about trophies. I think for me, for my whole coaching, the big duty to bring every single player up the right way."

New York will go into the season with one of the younger sides in MLS but one that has promising potential. Players like Cameron Harper, Caden Clark and Wikelman Carmona will join players that seem like veterans in their early 20's like Youba Diarra and Tom Edwards. European experience will clash with development in the hopes for a mixture that will lead to league success.

The Red Bull high press is also seemingly getting a revamp under Struber. The hope is that the young, impressionable, players will soak up the system and produce the high-energy play that the team became accustomed to delivering five years earlier. 

"Right now we have talent, we have experience players and right now it is my responsibility to bring the boys together," said Struber. "In this way, what we need for 2021 is that everyone is ready to develop and also that we can bring the right results."

There has been frustration during preseason with the cancellation of games due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, Struber is confident that the team will be ready to deliver on his and the organization's vision come mid-April.

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.

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

Merced Red Bull News Network had the chance to communicate with former New York Red Bulls head coach Gerhard Struber, now the manager of Red Bull Salzburg in the Austrian Bundesliga. Struber was with New York from the end of the 2020 campaign through to the early part of 2023. Along the way he secured two playoff berths, a seventh and fourth place finish in 2021 and 2022 respectively. While his time was ended abruptly in MLS, his memories of the American version of the game have helped him prepare for such a monumental task in Europe. You spent nearly three seasons in Major League Soccer with the New York Red Bulls, what did you learn from that experience that has made you a different coach at Red Bull Salzburg? Struber: In addition to the sporting aspects, there is a lot that I was able to gain from my work at New York Red Bulls. Any work in a foreign country not only brings you closer to the language, but also to the culture and mentality of the pe
