New York Red Bulls II have added Venezuelan right back Edgardo Rito on loan from Venezuelan side Fundacion Yaracuyanos FC, the club announced today. Rito has received his P-1 visa and joined NYRB II for preseason camp in Tucson, Arizona.

 
Rito, 23, has appeared in 23 matches with 1,941 minutes across all competitions in Venezuela. The defender played in 15 Torneo Calusura matches and six Torneo Apertura matches in Venezuela's first division. Rito most recently played for Metropolitanos FC during the 2018 Torneo Clausura season, starting four matches.
 
"Rito is a player that impressed us with his pace and athleticism," said NYRB II Head Coach John Wolyniec. "He has shown an ability to be really aggressive both defensively and offensively, and our staff is excited to get a chance to work with him."
 
Rito made his first-team debut with Mineros de Guayana in 2016 as a 20-year-old. During the 2016 Torneo Clausura season, he started the final 11 matches and helped anchor a backline to two clean sheets.

That's a really strange move.  Older than our previous South/Central American loanees, and no experience at the national team.  He's also being loaned from the 2nd division.


Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

It's a loan, so no long term commitment. They may have just needed the body to fill a hole.

Seem a long way to go to fill a hole on RB2, butwho knows... maybe they see a diamond in the rough with more upside potential than his current club see.

One has to assume they saw something, but certainly a low risk "extended trial". Maybe they are preparing for Murillo to leave during or at the end of this season and are looking at a future backup for Duncan?

Perhaps he just wanted to get out of Venezuela.

this is just like Douglas Martinez. they brought him in on loan as well. didn't work out, but nothing wrong with trying to see if a player can fit into the system or not. doing it via RB2 means it's an investment in the future of a player, without it being high-risk.

We needed another signing at outside back. If this guy can play at a Duncan level then its a huge success. Time will tell, but on paper I like the move.
