Club President, SC Vistula Garfield: Dariusz Wesolowski

“We are thrilled to see our 'Big' Chris Tenecela (aka 'Krzysiu') moving to U14 Red Bull Academy. He will join another SC Vistula alumni in Jeff Bryjak there.

It is sad to see him leave his home at SC Vistula, but we know that he will chase his professional dreams at the New York Red Bulls. Chris was accepted to Red Bulls Academy after the invitation to train period and the Red Bulls Academy staff praised not only his talent but also great work ethics and humbleness. We are proud to be able to instill these values in our players.

The SC Vistula Family, your teammates at 2007 Lewandowski, coaches and management will miss you 'Krzysiu.' Thank you for wonderful games and unforgettable memories from our trips, tournaments and practices. You will always be part of Wisla.”

Academy Director, Red Bulls Academy: Sean McCafferty

“We are excited to be able to officially add Chris to our U14 Academy roster. Chris did very well when playing against us for his previous club SC Vistula, and then again, impressed during his training period with us soon after. He has good pace and energy both in and out of possession and fits our aggressive style of play which will no doubt see him score some goals this spring.

We look forward to working with Chris on a consistent basis and playing a part in his continued development here at New York Red Bulls Academy.”

U14 Academy Coach, Red Bulls Academy: Simon Nee

“We first identified Chris when we played against his club team SC Vistula. Chris work rate against the ball and his direct attacking style really caught the eye of the technical staff that night. Chris came in for an evaluation shortly after and really impressed the coaching staff in his training mentality and abilities on the ball. We look forward to helping Chris in this next chapter and would like to acknowledge the excellent work that SC Vistula have played in Chris development.”

Academy Scout, Red Bulls Academy: Fouad Kawtari

“Christopher is a player that has the right attributes to be successful at the next level with dazzling speed. We believe that he will be succeed with our team and continue the development pathway that was started in SC Vistula.”
