After seven years with New York Red Bulls, Bradley Wright-Phillips is moving on. According to ESPN’s sources, Wright-Phillips will join LAFC’s training this week, hoping to land a contract with the organization.
Wright-Phillips lost his place in Red Bulls’ starting lineup in 2019, starting just nine games out of 24 appearances and contributing with two goals and four assists. The club opted not to extend his contract following the end of the season.
LAFC reportedly views Wright-Phillips as a great addition to their attack, hoping to bolster their depth for the upcoming season in which they’ll participate in three competitions.
After spending his early career in Europe with clubs like Manchester City and Charlton Athletic, Bradley Wright-Phillips joined New York Red Bulls in 2013. He made an immediate impact, helping the team to Supporters’ Shield, Red Bulls’ first major trophy.
Since then, Wright-Phillips won two more Supporters’ Shields with New York while scoring 126 goals in all competition. He also won two MLS Golden Boot awards while earning a pair of MLS All-Star appearances and a couple of MLS Best XI selections.
