New York Red Bulls director denies Ronaldinho link
According to New York Red Bulls sporting director Andy Roxburgh, the 34-year-old Brazilian will not be joining the MLS side, reports The Washington Post.
Ronaldinho recently had his contract with Atlético-MG terminated by mutual consent and he has since been linked with a whole host of clubs from around the globe.
One place he will not be going, however, is New York Red Bulls.
“Nobody has ever approached us. We haven’t been approached by anybody mentioning Ronaldinho,” Roxburgh told BigAppleSoccer.com.
“And the name suddenly comes at us and the answer is no. All I’m saying is this: as the sporting director of this club, and I can speak also on behalf of my other colleagues in the business, we have not been approached about him. Nobody has offered us Ronaldinho. No one has said ‘how much money?’
“I saw his name, but I’ve never talked to Ronaldinho or his people or made any offers. And the answer is we wouldn’t be doing it anyway. It’s not a matter of did we or didn’t we? Or who spoke to him or who didn’t speak to him? A great player by the way, fantastic player. He’s not for here.”
