After the Red Bulls announced they weren't re-signing the Costa Rican Left Back at the end of the season, recent news has been reported by evergol.com that Roy Miller has signed a contract with Deportivo Saprissa. The former Left Back played in 140 games and hasn't scored a single goal in his six seasons with the club.

After his injury to start the 2015 at Sporting Kansas City it was Kemar Lawrence who took over the left fullback position and he never let it go. There were many times that Roy Miller went down the left flank and made some solid crosses to start setting up plays, but of course he couldn't score a goal for his life when he converted during the 2014 pre-season at the Disney Soccer Classic against the Montreal Impact.

How could anyone forget the free kick he took without getting instructions from Thierry Henry and bombing the ball into the second deck at Red Bull Arena after being down by a goal on aggregate in the 2012 MLS Cup Playoffs against DC United. Henry gave him the look of "What did you just do" after striking a ball he had no business taking.

But with the Red Bulls winning the 2015 Supporters Shield and placed into Pot 3 of the CONCACAF Champions League with the rest of the MLS American sides and the four Mexican Liga MX sides, Deportivo Saprissa is also in the tournament this edition and wouldn't be interesting if the Red Bulls had to play against the Costa Rican Winter Season champions who will be placed in Pot 2 with another Costa Rican Club and three other countries from Panama, Honudras & Guatemala.

But we want to wish Roy Miller good luck in the Spring Season of the Costa Rican first division and let's see when the draw is made if the Red Bulls and Saprissa will be drawn into the same group for this summers addition of the CONCACAF Champions League.
