Along with his on-field talents, Pearce took his turntables with him to the East Coast.
The trouble is, his new Red Bulls teammate Jan Gunnar Solli also never goes without prematch music.
“We’re going to have to battle it off to see who gets to make the game-day mixes,” Pearce joked.
Solli’s response? “Ok. It’s on.”
So, as the the regular season wraps up and the Red Bulls get set for a playoff run to the MLS Cup, who should be the team DJ? We let the two candidates make their cases.
