Yesterday on Twitter during the team's FIFA 11 tournament, Kei Kamara tweeted a post about one of the games featuring K-Rex (Korede Aiyegbusi) and Sunisa. No one currently on the roster had a name that sounded anything like that so I began to think it was a new trialist. My first guess was maybe former New York Red Bulls midfielder, Sinisa Ubiparipovic. I spent time searching the net trying to find a picture of Ubiparipovic that would show his tattoo that's in the picture, but didn't have much luck. I took a guess this morning that it was and had this confirmed by Kurt Austin, the team's press officer.
Ubiparipovic was waived by New York recently after playing 4 seasons with the MLS side. He played in 69 games, scoring 2 goals for the Red Bulls. It's an interesting selection and he was one of the few players available in the waiver draft that I thought would be a decent pick up for KC. It'll be interesting to see if KC signs him, he could come in and be a replacement for Jack Jewsbury at a cheaper price.
