HARRISON, N.J. (APRIL 26, 2017) – New York Red Bulls II have completed a loan of forward Douglas Martinez from CD Vida, the club announced today. Martinez is now fully registered with the league and federation, and will be available for selection for NYRB II’s next match on May 6, when the Harrisburg City Islanders visit Montclair State University.
“Douglas is a young international player that has many of the tools we look for in an attacking player,” Head Coach John Wolyniec said. “We feel that his pace and energy, aggressive mentality and determination fit in well with our style of play."
