First, Bruce Arena was dismissed. Now, Clint Mathis has been exiled. Could Claudio Reyna be next?
Mathis was guaranteed $410,000 this year. It is probably safe to say he will not be making that much next year.
SECAUCUS, NJ (Monday, November 19, 2007) - Red Bull New York announced today that it has acquired a 2008 third round SuperDraft pick from the Los Angeles Galaxy in exchange for midfielder/forward Clint Mathis. "By acquiring this pick, we will now be able to have a selection in every round of the 2008 SuperDraft. This allows us more flexibility moving forward," said Red Bull New York Technical Director Jeff Agoos. "This was a very difficult decision but I would like to thank Clint for his work this year and wish him the best of luck in the future." Mathis is the Red Bulls' all-time leading goal-scorer in all competitions with 45, breaking Giovanni Savarese's record in a 5-4 win over the Galaxy on August 18. The Conyers, Ga., native served his second stint with the Red Bulls in 2007 after being acquired from the Colorado Rapids in exchange for a 2008 fourth round MLS SuperDraft pick and a conditional pick in 2009. This season, Mathis played in 26 games, starting in 19 and scoring six goals and two assists.
