Ring is a midfielder with experience in high level European competition who contributes on both sides of the game. A solid ball-winner and distributor, Ring has also slotted into central defense at times. He'll wear the captain's armband for NYCFC in 2019.

INTERNATIONAL: Ring made his debut for Finland in June 2011 against Sweden before cementing himself as a regular in the Euro 2012 qualifying campaign. Ring has 44 Finland caps, scoring twice.

OUTSIDE MLS: Although he was born in Helsinki, Ring spent a substantial period of his childhood in Germany and developed as a player in the youth academies at VFL Lannesdorf and Bayer Leverkusen, as well as Anderlecht in Belgium and HJK Helsinki back in Finland. He made his senior debut at Klubi-04 before signing a full professional contract at the age of 19 back at Helsinki in 2010. Following two years in the Helsinki first-team, a year-long loan spell at Borussia Monchengladbach convinced FC Kaiserslautern to take Ring to Germany on a full-time basis in 2013 and he’s been there since, making more than 70 league appearances.
