Gerhard Struber has lost his debut as coach of the New York Red Bulls. The “Bulls” lost 3-2 at Columbus Crew in the first play-off round of Major League Soccer (MLS) on Saturday. For the 43-year-old from Salzburg, who moved from the English second division club Barnsley to NYRB at the beginning of October, and his new team, the season is over.
New York took the lead through 17-year-old Caden Clark (23rd), Pedro Santos with a penalty (26th), Darlington Nagbe (46th) and Gyasi Zardes (68th) turned the game in favor of the favorite. Brian White, who came on as a substitute for Styrian Daniel Royer in the 59th minute, only managed the connection goal in the 90th minute.
