Report: Brian Nielsen Returns To Red Bull For Six Months

Injury plagued Danish midfielder Brian Nielsen will rejoin Red Bull for another six months according to jv.dk.

The article describes a reluctant Red Bull agreeing to extend Nielsen’s services due to his history of ailments. “He has a history of injury here,” explained Nielsen’s agent, “and therefore they would like to see him six months more. This makes Brian obviously very happy.” His agent goes on to speak about how Nielsen will have an entire winter to get into game shape for the first time in his two years with the Red Bulls.

Just how disappointing has Nielsen’s stay in New York been? The winger has appeared in three league matches over two years while earning a salary cap crushing $120k. He is currently signed by Red Bull, assigned to Salzburg and loaned to New York, further compounding on an already convoluted ordeal.
