WHAT HAPPENED? Clark finally joined up with RB Leipzig in January, having spent last season on loan with the New York Red Bulls after signing with the German side in 2021. He's made the bench several times, but has yet to see the field, and Rose admitted that Clark could go out on loan next season in search of consistent minutes.

WHAT THEY SAID: "We might think about getting him playing time at another club," Rose said. "He's doing well, but we need patience. He's a great footballer with good basic technique who recognizes a lot of things, but, with his decision-making, there's still a lot of untapped potential, and we'll work on that with him."
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Clark is expected to be a part of the U20s men's national team squad for the World Cup, which is set to kick off in May. It remains to be seen where it will kick off, though, as FIFA stripped Indonesia of hosting rights on Wednesday.
