One of the best left backs in Major League Soccer’s history — we think that’s right — is heading abroad.
Lawrence, 27, has 55 caps for Jamaica with three goals to go with 146 career appearances for RBNY, where he has five goals and 10 assists.

The man they call “Taxi” goes from an RBNY back line anchored by Aaron Long to an Anderlecht back line skippered by Vincent Kompany.
Lawrence was limited to nine league matches last season but was a 2018 MLS Best XI and was a Gold Cup Best XI in 2017.
RBNY is going to look really different this season, as Lawrence joins Bradley Wright-Phillips and Luis Robles as mainstays to leave New Jersey.
