Luke Rodgers' visa denied, contract terminated by NY Red Bulls. Leaves impression that NYRB asleep at the switch gutted for him good friend— John Bower Physio (@bouncebackphy) March 30, 2012
The New York Red Bulls have released a statement about the removal of forward Luke Rodgers from the team.
“After going through the entire immigration and appeals process, Luke’s P-1 Visa application has unfortunately been denied by the U.S. government for now. We have spoken with Luke about potential options and have mutually decided that it would be in all parties’ best interests to terminate his current MLS contract so he could play elsewhere. However, we will also continue to track his progress this year while working with immigration officials with the goal that he could join the Red Bulls sometime in the future.”
