Red Bulls Sign Miller and Robles to New Contracts

USA TODAY Sports

The club's official site confirms signings.

Whether you consider it good news or bad news, as of this morning, it is officially news.   The New York Red Bulls have confirmed that they have inked a new contract with Costa Rican defender Roy Miller.  Earlier rumors of the international left back deciding to head home to Costa Rica can now be put to bed.

Miller started the 2013 season on what could arguably be called the worst foot possible but, after a series of "what could you possibly be thinking?!?!" gaffs and a short vacation at the request of coach Mike Petke, he made an impressive comeback and became an integral part of New York's attack.   Though Miller was sidelined through a large part of the season due to an Achilles injury, the new contract is a positive sign of Petke's confidence in him as a starting left back, a position in which the Red Bulls are in serious need of depth.

Depth at goalkeeper, however, will not be problem.  The club has also announced that they've agreed to a new contract with starting keeper Luis Robles, whom sporting director Andy Roxburg has called "one of the best keepers in Major League Soccer."  The only Red Bull to play in every minute of the regular season, Robles wasn't without his share of mistakes, however the former US international certainly saved New York's butt on a number of occasions.  Considering he was essentially making peanuts this season, it's no surprise that the club has decided to reward his stellar play.

Both contracts are more proof that Roxburg and company are sticking to their word in keeping a consistent core of players heading into the 2014 season.
