Ruthven, Rafhinha look to be signed
February 27, 2013
It looks like at least two more trialists will be signing with Metro. Defender Tyler Ruthven, dropped last season, but given a chance to return, looks to have done as much, winning a spot during the preseason.
The second trialist to be signed is Facebook sensation Rafhael Domingues, or Rafhinha. The Brazilian/Austrian's tweets have him going to Brazil to get a visa, then coming to New York and Juninho's house. The forward has even revealed his jersey number... #92.
Peguy Luyindula, the trialist with the most impressive resume, could be in the mix as well, but fitness is an issue. "We're willing to give him a little more time. At the price I hope we'd be able to get him at, it wouldn't put a dent," Mike Petke told the NY Post. "But we're not going to make a decision until we're fully satisfied that we're seeing the real him."
