The newest New York Red Bull, goalkeeper Frank Rost, is expected to be in the net Saturday night when the Red Bulls (6-4-10) face Chivas USA (5-7-7) in Carson, Ca. Saturday night (10:30 p.m. ET, MSG). Rost, the Red Bulls third Designated Player, was signed this week from Hamburg SV in the German Bundislaga.

The Red Bulls have used three different players in goal this season (Bouna Coundoul, Greg Sutton, and Alex Horwath), and that inconsistency has resulted in numerous errors that have cost the team points on several occasions.

Rost brings a wealth of experience to the club, having spent nearly 20 years playing in the German Bundesliga. As of Saturday afternoon there was still no word on which keeper the Red Bulls would drop, although Sutton's absence from practice on Friday is likely telling.

Rost practiced Friday for the first time with his new team. See the video below for his thoughts, as well as those of coach Hans Backe and general manager Erik Soler.

New York, 1-2-3 in its last six Major League Soccer matches, is coming off a disappointing 1-0 home loss to rivals DC United. To add insult to injury, the only goal in that match was scored by former Red Bull Dwayne De Rosario.
