In a surprising turn of events, Major League Soccer (MLS) team New York Red Bulls has decided to part ways with Ugandan midfielder Steven Sserwadda, the Pulse reports.
The 21-year-old, who joined the club’s second-tier side, New York Red Bulls 2, in 2021, has seen a tumultuous stint in the United States.
Sserwadda’s journey with the Red Bulls was marked by injuries and setbacks. After a two-month absence, he made a comeback in May during a match against New York City II. Unfortunately, he found himself sidelined again, remaining out of action ever since. The midfielder has missed a total of 52 games for both New York Red Bulls and New York Red Bulls 2 during this period.
Having spent two and a half seasons at KCCA before making the move to the U.S., Sserwadda’s promotion to the senior team occurred in June of the previous year. He played three times for the senior squad.
Sserwadda’s departure leaves compatriots Frank Ssebufu and Ibrahim Kasule as the remaining Ugandan representatives in the United States.
Currently, Transfermarkt.com values the Sserwadda’s transfer at €200,000
