Trialist Toure Departs Red Bull, Returns to Thunder
Word out of St. Paul is that forward Ansu Toure has left the Red Bull and is returning to the Minnesota Thunder of the USL First Division. Toure had impressed the Red Bull staff early in his two month tryout, but the continuing emergence of neophyte Jozy Altidore, the re-acquisition of controversial striker Clint Mathis and the potential signing of a Big Shot Designated Player (Angel? Salas? Zidane? Berger? Fowler?) has apparently made Toure surplus to requirements with the Major League Soccer club.
