Roxburgh welcomes New York rivalry

New York Red Bulls' sporting director Andy Roxburgh believes Manchester City's involvement in Major League Soccer will bring some British-style rivalry to the Big Apple.

From a sporting point of view - I can't talk from a business point of view - we are delighted about it.

Our reaction was 'great' because they will be a big rival. It is competition and that's fine.

Two big teams in one town; some people might think it is bad news but it isn't bad news from a football point of view.

– Andy Roxburgh speaking to Press Association Sport.
