Clint Mathis was traded to New York Red Bulls yesterday. His career took off with the Metrostars, after impressing with the LA Galaxy in his early MLS playing days .With much fan fare, hype, and publicity surrounding Mathis leading into the 2002 World Cup tournament, he experienced a somewhat disappointing tournament on a personal basis, only scoring one goal. Mathis quickly departed the MLS for the German league, where he had a turbulent time after a great debut. Mathis is now again back in New York trying to resurrect his career, perhaps for the final time. He arrives after a couple of sub par years with MLS teams Real Salt Lake, and Colorado .
