HARRISON, N.J. – After a 5-11-0 season in which the team failed to reach the playoffs, Red Bulls II is cleaning house.
The USL Championship club has exercised options on two players and declined the options of 10 players.
NYRB II has exercised the options of forwards Omar Sowe and Jake Lacava.
Red Bulls II declined the options on goalkeeper Wallis Lapsley, defenders Roy Boateng, Preston Kilwien, Edgardo Rito and Joesph Fala, midfielders Deri Corfe, Cherif Dieye, Samad Bounthong and Barry Sharifi and forward Sebastian Elney.
Midfielder Kyle Zajec and the club are in discussions over a new contract.
“Making decisions this year was particularly difficult after such an unusual year and due to the depth of talent we had,” head coach John Wolyniec said in a statement. “The club is especially grateful to the players’ efforts in tough times and we wish them success going forward in their careers.”
