Red Bulls and defender Ogunbiyi part ways

The New York Red Bulls and defender Babajide Ogunbiyi have

agreed to part ways.

The Red Bulls announced the move Friday, citing undisclosed

concerns about the player’s physical condition.

General manager Erik Soler said Ogunbiyi took a physical after

being signed in late July and the team had some concerns. After

consulting a number of doctors over the past two weeks, the team

decided to let him go.

The Red Bulls refused to comment on the medical issue, citing

the player’s right to confidentiality.

Ogunbiyi had played with Viborg FF of the Danish First Division

since 2010.
