The hiring manager discussed the possibility of signing the club’s New York Red Bulls teenager and one day signing Brendon Aronson.
Hired RB Leipzig manager Jesse Marsh says Caden Clark has both a personality and the ability to shine in Germany because he said the young American has a “borderline connection” to help him reach Europe. Will be able to adjust the pressure.
With Clarke joining RB Leipzig this winter, what will be his first full season with the New York Red Bulls when he becomes the youngest American to join Europe’s top clubs?
In an interview with GolClarke detailed his love of attacking, aiming to be a “killer” the last time the ball came in at number three, and March said he would make the best of his life in Leipzig. When he jumps.
What did Marsh say about Clark?
“I came home at the end of May and I went to the Red Bliss Training Center in New York and I met him for the first time that day and I had a follow-up talk with him a few weeks later.” Marsh said.
“There’s always a key effort to know who a player is, especially a young player, and to know Cadden’s personality, you can see he has the energy and the confidence and the confidence. These are the boundaries. But its root is only in trust, who it is and what it is about.
“So this is always the best starting point for me. I can remember the meeting [RB Leipzig and U.S. men’s national team midfielder] When Tyler Adams was 15 years old and he said, ‘Well, we have something’, it’s amazing. “
It’s not just the mental aspect of Clarke’s game that impressed Marsh, but his real potential on the field.
The Red Bulls teenager, who was ruled out of the USMNT Gold Cup squad due to an appendectomy, has scored six goals in 12 MLS appearances, many of which are amazing.
“Obviously, he has the ability to play football the way we think,” Marsh said. “He can run, he’s aggressive, he’s talented with the ball, he’s creative around the goal. He’s clearly shown that he has the quality. I think he’s really aggressive with playing aggressively. The combination of personalities fits the way we think of football in Leipzig.
“It’s important for him to stay focused, and the last time I spoke to him, that was my message. It’s really important for him to stay focused on his development in New York and what he’s doing in New York.” There’s something going on. One hundred percent commit to it. York and Leipzig want something that’s behind and not in the forefront right now, but I think that’s enough to make them understand. The quantity is dominant.
Look at Ironson
In RB Leipzig, Marsh will not only work with Clarke on moving to Germany, but also Taylor Adams, who helped develop during his pairing with the New York Red Bulls.
Over the years, Marsh has worked with many top young players in the MLS, from Adams and Matt Maiga to RB Salzburg, such as Arling Holland, Patten Dacca and Takomi Manamino.
He has also been replaced by Brendon Aronson, the USMNT midfielder who moved to Salzburg last season, shortly after arriving in the Austrian Bundesliga. It just shone.
The former Philadelphia Union midfielder has scored seven goals in 25 games, and when asked if he wants to bring Aronson to Leipzig, Marsh says he is one of several. With whom they would love to work again in an ideal world.
“Brandon was another young man who, when I first spoke to him, I could see the energy in his personality,” and so when he came to Salzburg, it was a huge adjustment. Was: the pace of the game, the level of training, the expectations we have from the players. But he adapted so quickly, and the more information we gave him, the more hungry we became to give him even more.
“Because of his personality, the team accepted him so well and he immediately became a big part of the group. It says two things: it says a lot about who Brandon is and It says a lot about our environment there in Salzburg.
“I’ve often said: like the 15 Salzburg players, I want to come here. But it’s not that easy and Brandon is a good player and he certainly has big ambitions, and he has big in front of him. It has a future
“I don’t want to put any pressure on the media or any particular player. I want them to spend their time together and enjoy what they’re doing in Salzburg. But of course, just because of the fact that I’ve worked there and I have such a good relationship with Brandon I will definitely keep an eye on what he is doing.
