Although he is a great player Rafa Marquez has had a rough time getting signed. This has nothing to do with his playing though because Rafa Marquez is one of the best soccer players out there but just that precisely is why he has such a hard time. Marquez has one of the top three highest salaries in the league but only made 44 appearances during his three years with the Red Bulls.
NEW YORK -- Rafa Marquez might have drawn the ire of New York fans and opposing players, but Thierry Henry believes the Red Bulls will miss the Mexico international.
“We’re obviously going to miss him, his vision on the field and the way he calmed people down," Henry said. "You don't replace Rafa Marquez easily."
Marquez was unceremoniously dumped by the Red Bulls and later signed with Liga MX side Club Leon during the past offseason. He is widely considered as the worst Major League Soccer Designated Player signing of all-time as he was among the top three highest salaries in the league and made only 44 appearances during his three years with the Red Bulls.
