RSL players have plenty of history in MLS Cup

By Jane Sexton

In two days Real Salt Lake will play its second MLS Cup Final in the club’s nine-season history. Multiple RSL players have lifted the Cup before, both with Claret-and-Cobalt in 2009 and with other teams through the years.

Below is a list of all the Claret-and-Cobalt players that have previously won MLS Cup titles:

Josh Saunders – The currently sidelined goalkeeper is looking to win his fourth MLS Cup title this Saturday. Saunders previously won MLS Cup 2005, 2011 and 2012 with LA Galaxy.

Nick Rimando – The RSL veteran goalkeeper has won two MLS Cup titles – MLS Cup 2004 with D.C. United and MLS Cup 2009 with Real Salt Lake

Ned Grabavoy – RSL’s dynamic midfielder has lifted the MLS Cup trophy twice before – first with LA Galaxy in 2005 and then in 2009 with Real Salt Lake

Kyle Beckerman, Nat Borchers, Tony Beltran, Chris Wingert, Javier Morales and Robbie Findley all won MLS Cup 2009 with Real Salt Lake

The experience and leadership that comes with Real Salt Lake’s core group of veterans will surely come into play on Saturday, when a re-tooled and – in places – young squad looks to win the club’s second title at Sporting Kansas City.
