The New York Red Bulls have one representative in the 2016 MLS All Star game: Sacha Kljestan. RBNY head coach Jesse Marsch told Big Apple Soccer he's hoping Kljestan won't play more than 45 minutes, but suspects his primary playmaker will stay on the field longer.
But Red Bulls fans can hope the bigger names in the All-Stars squad - Andrea Pirlo, Didier Drogba, Kaka, David Villa etc. - exert sufficient pressure on coach Dom Kinnear that the likes of Kljestan are used sparingly.
The All-Stars will do well to match RBNY's record against the Gunners.
