New York Red Bulls goalkeeper David Jensen is loaned to Belgian club Westerlo




IN New York Red Bulls lent the goalkeeper David Jensen Belgian club KVC Westerlo, it was announced on Thursday. Jensen moves to the second-tier group of companies on a loan for a period of one year.

The 29-year-old Danish networker has yet to show up for the 2021 MLS season as head coach Gerhard Struber was forming the Eastern Conference squad. Back in the 2020 campaign, shortened by the pandemic, he played 11 matches (10 starts) as RBNY finished 11th in a row in the Audi MLS Cup playoffs.

“We wish David all the best as he heads to play against Westerlo,” sports chief Kevin Telwell said in a team press release. “He is a professional, on and off the pitch, and we hope he does well during his time at Westerlo.”

Struber preferred Carlos Coronel as his best goalkeeper in the first seven RBNI games this year. The 24-year-old Brazilian is loaned from Red Bull Salzburg after having previously spent part of the 2019 campaign on loan from Philadelphia Union from the same Austrian club.

As for backup options, the veteran Ryan Meara and boy Luca Lewis remain with RBNY. Meara has played 36 league appearances since turning pro in 2012, and 20-year-old Lewis is awaiting his MLS debut.

Jensen originally signed with RBNY in January 2020 from Dutch club Eredivisie FC Utrecht. A former Danish national team player, he began his career in the Super League (Danish First Division) FC Nordsjelland in 2009.
