Hill tops and valleys … many, many, many valleys.
That would best describe the enigma that is Rafa Marquez. For every red card, suspension or inane outburst, there was a brilliant performance, a majestic end to end assist and even, at times, a good teammate. Though the positives were usually short lived and sandwiched between controversy, it was certainly enough for many to believe that one day – one day – Rafa would turn it around.
That moment never happened and now, it never will. Instead, New York is left with a collection of dumbfounding incidents with sparse moments of brilliance sprinkled in between.
Marquez gave Red Bull fans many moments to remember – but most they probably wish they could forget. Here is a compilation of these moments which I will simply label “Rafa’s Greatest Hits.”
Feel free to contribute your moments as well on twitter or in the comments section. Who knows – I may just add them!
