On April 22, 2017, Sacha Kljestan was credited with a secondary assist for his part in the build-up to the New York Red Bulls' first goal of a 2-0 win over Columbus Crew.
It was Kljestan's 40th assist in all competitions for RBNY - and he is just the second player in club history to reach that mark. On the club's all-time, all-competitions assist-making list, Kljestan has broken free of the legends clustered on 39 career assists for the team - Tab Ramos and Amado Guevara - to stand alone in second place, behind only Thierry Henry.
