Photo by MB Media/ In the final segment of our five-part series about the background of new Red Bulls head coach Gerhard Struber, we take a closer look at the man himself While it may not the exact type of expensive transfer many New York Red Bulls fans frequently call for, the club paid a release clause to acquire their new manager Gerhard Struber from Barnsley FC of the English second division. The reported $2.5 million fee may seem high, but it’s motivated by a long-held institutional belief in the organization that the manager should be one of the most highly paid members of the...
