In spite of the fact that his contract hasn’t been renewed, Shaun Wright Phillips is still positive about extending his stay at Red Bull Arena.

The winger hopes that he would get the chance to feature for the team again in the 2016 edition of the Major League Soccer.
Phillips had joined Red Bulls mid way through 2015.

The veteran failed to do justice to the stature he had come with, managing to net only once in 12 appearances.

To be fair, however, he was not given that much of playing time. Most of his appearances were pretty brief ones.

He was included in the starting XI just a solitary time. So, it was a little tough for him to get into the perfect rhythm.
But, he understood what the situation was and has no complaints about being kept on the bench for most of the time.

Speaking to a newspaper, the 34-year old said, “Coming in the middle of the season, you can’t expect yourself to play much. The players who are settled in certain positions, it’s hard to take them off from there.”

Phillips is eager to stay in New York and he believes he would look a different player once he has had a complete pre season.
In the words of Phillips, “I definitely want to play next MLS. Let’s see. I don’t know anything at this point of time, but, I hope I have the opportunity to be back in.”

Phillips’ brother Bradley, on the other hand, had another fantastic season for Red Bulls as he finished as their leading scorer with a total of 18 strikes.

Lloyd Sam and Mike Grella were in decent goal scoring form too as they scored 12 and 10 goals respectively.
