The New York Red Bulls are on the verge of extending their string of consecutive Audi MLS Cup Playoff appearances to 12 years, second only to the Seattle Sounders' 13 consecutive appearances.

However, manager Gerhard Struber, who is in his first full season in Major League Soccer, is setting a higher standard for 2022.

“We totally believe that we can still reach the playoffs. We can do it, despite significantly lowering the average age of our team and the new situation – and then we want to get as far as possible,” Struber told transfermarkt.us.

"But what is more important to me is, what happens afterward, to achieve it all and play for trophies. That is the next step. When I look back at all our games and how close we were at times, then I think it is realistic to go for it next year.”

The Red Bulls are one of the hottest teams in Major League Soccer right now, having extended their unbeaten streak to seven games with a 1-0 win over New York City FC on Sunday, the club's third win in a row.
