Report: Striker Omer Damari Set to Join RBNY from RB Leipzig

Damari Red Bulls

by ANTHONY J. MERCED

Is the long-awaiting Red Bull Global synergy about to boost the New York affiliate?

Israeli international striker Omer Damari is set to join New York Red Bulls on a loan from sister team RB Leipzig according to BBC World Football correspondent Raphael Gellar.

Damari, 27-years-old, has spent the last year on loan with Red Bull Salzburg after being acquired by RB Leipzig in 2015. During that time he has made 16 appearances and scoring 4 goals as Salzburg won the double in the Austrian Budesliga. He also played 10 games last season for RB Leipzig but didn’t score any goals as the team went on to be promoted to the German Bundesliga.

Damari’s most successful stretch was with Hapoel Tel Aviv from 2011 to 2014 where he made 101 appearances for the club with 56 goals. Previous to that he was with Maccabi Petah Tikva, also in the Israeli Premier League, playing 118 games and scoring 29 goals.

The signing is another example of the synergy between the clubs as in 2013 Ibrahim Sekagya joined the New York Red Bulls from Red Bull Salzburg and contributed to the teams first Supporters Shield winning season. Damari is much younger than Sekagya who moved in his mid-30’s.

      We don’t care for his kind in my country! He would never play for City Football Group@

      • MM-RB

        Sounds like you care about oil money the most, this the main reason I dislike the City group. You must be so proud of the city group roots.

  • MM-RB

    I’m so happy, he is a great player and will fit really well. I’ve been following him for a while.

  • Soccer philosophy

    Poor red bull fans, and their fans believe this is not a chivas USA situation.
    What’s next, red bull adds a jersey sponsor.
    Can’t wait for the red bull vs NYCFC playoff game.

  • Coney dogs

    So Philadelphia after Alejandro B. and red bull get who. Let’s be realistic red bull fans, if Union, nyc or tfc win the east,then something has to happen in red bull world.
