Carlos Coronel is going nowhere.
The 24-year-old Brazilian goalkeeper completed his transfer from Red Bull Salzburg to the New York Red Bulls on Monday and signed a contract with the team to keep him in New York until 2024.
Coronel was one of the top goalkeepers in the MLS during his first season with the Red Bulls in 2021. He recorded 13 shutouts in the campaign, a draw for the league management and was one of only two goalkeepers in the league who played every minute in 2021.
Retaining Coronel for another three years was a simple matter for RBNY.
“Carlos is a great talent and I am happy to see him back with us,” head coach Gerhard Struber said in a statement. “He’s not only a good person to have in our locker room, but also someone who is the key to building on our success from last season to next.”
Coronel previously spent time with Salzburg and the Philadelphia Union before joining RBNY in February. He made three appearances, including two starts, during the UEFA Champions League group stage 2019-20 for RB Salzburg and earned a record of 1-1-1.
After a strong first season, Coronel is part of RBNY’s long-term plans, as the team looks set to compete for its first MLS Cup title.
“Carlos was a big part of our success last season and we are delighted to extend his stay with us,” said Sports Director Kevin Thelwell. “Finishing as one of the best goalkeepers last season made it an easy decision for us to take him back.”
