Acquired in trade with New York Red Bulls on Aug. 9 in exchange for Nashville’s 2020 and 2021 international picks and an additional $50,000 in GAM in 2021, if Muyl meets certain performance-based metrics.
Nashville Soccer Club (Major League Soccer, United States)
A NYRB Homegrown Player, Alex Muyl joins Nashville after four full seasons with the Red Bulls’ senior squad. During his time there, Muyl appeared in 113 Regular Season matches, playing a vital role in New York’s success which saw the Red Bulls win the MLS Supporter’s Shield with a record of 22-7-5 and 71 points in 2018.
A proven reliability for the Red Bulls, Muyl appeared in a minimum of 24 MLS Regular Season matches in every season he was in New York. In 2019 Muyl began the year with three Champions League starts and became the 24th player in Red Bull franchise history to tally at least 10 goals and 10 assists.
In the 2018 Supporters Shield winning campaign, Muyl tied his career high with 30 appearances. The winger started all five Champions League matches and scored the eventual game-winning goal in Leg 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals vs. Columbus Crew SC.
