Juan Carlos Osorio


"I just hope I made the right decision."

What needs to change here? Without being critical of the previous coach, you look at the stats, offensively, the Red Bulls scored a lot of goals. I think offensively they look good. Defensively, they need more. I would concentrate more on this. Hopefully I can contribute to do that.

Do you expect Claudio Reyna to return next season? I think it would be very important to have Claudio here. Definitely, Claudio will have to make his decisions. On the pitch, Claudio can be very influential.

How will you gauge success next season? I think that first and foremost we have to put a team that can compete with anybody on any given day. I think that this club would have to think of championships. The MLS as a league, you have to work within certain restrictions, it takes a while ... I would put all my effort into doing that.

MLSnet.com recently interviewed new Red Bull New York head coach Juan Carlos Osorio. The 46 year old Colombian replaced former USA manager Bruce Arena, who parted ways with the Red Bulls after compiling a 16-16-10 record over his 15-month stint as head coach. Under Arena in 2007, New York went 12-11-7 in the regular season and lost in the Eastern Conference Semifinals to the Revolution.

So why New York? I thought that coming back to New York was a very good possibility for my family. In 2003 when I left for Manchester City I made it my goal to come back to New York and to be a coach. I wanted to meet with them and find out what their goals were and this is a great organization. The Red Bulls are putting a lot of effort into everything ... I just hope that I made the right decision.
