Marbella, ES-- Today, the Revolution announced the signing of Spanish midfielder Carles Gil from RCD Deportivo La Coruna. Gil, who is 26, has played for a multitude of clubs across Europe most notably his tenure with Aston Villa of the English Premier League in which he tallied 2 goals and 2 assists across 28 matches. In his career, Gil has raked in 10 goals over 168 appearances, and has proven a worthy offensive talent in his time overseas.
After months of speculation, and a mountain of reported interest from teams overseas, the New England Revolution have officially announced that they have signed two-time United Healthcare POTY Justin Rennicks to a Homegrown Player Contract. Rennicks becomes the 6th Homegrown player in Revolution history, and looks to find first team minutes, in a very competitive attacking front from the looks of it in this upcoming season.
The Revolution have announced the signing of 29-year-old Colombian forward Juan Fernando Caicedo from Independiente Medellin. The striker has amassed a career total of 72 goals in 214 regular season matches over 10 professional seasons across both Argentina’s and Colombia’s top flights of football. Caicedo will be officially listed as a designated player (DP), and can join the team following his acquisition of an official transfer certificate.
The New England Revolution have announced today that they have traded Kelyn Rowe to the Colorado Rapids in exchange for left-back Edgar Castillo. The 32-year-old outside-back has played primarily across the Mexican top divisions since his playing days began in 2006. Colorado was able to acquire the services of the American-born defender by way of a loan deal with Monterrey in Mexico. Castillo tallied 3 goals and 5 assists during the 2018 campaign, and fills a massive hole at left back on a Revolution team that struggled to find defensive consistency last season.
Earlier today the New England Revolution announce their official list of protected players in preparation for the upcoming expansion draft to welcome FC Cincinnati into the league. While Isaac Angking, Scott Caldwell, and Zachary Herivaux were all automatically protected due to their Homegrown status, the Revolution still faced the task of protecting another 11 players.
Today, Chris Tierney officially announced his retirement at a press conference earlier. The 2015 MLS All-Star selection had just completed his 11th pro season, spending all eleven with the New England Revolution. Tierney was given the captain’s armband for a majority of his latter career, and his leadership and refusal to lose attitude were among many reasons why he was missed so much this season.
One year after the United States Men's National Team suffered a devastating loss to Trinidad and Tobago, eliminating them from World Cup contention, the United States Women's National Team routed Trinidad and Tobago 7-0, keeping their World Cup berth alive.
The U.S. Women’s National Team defeated CONCACAF rival Mexico 6-0 in their first game of the 2018 CONCACAF Women’s Championship on Thursday night.
Today the Revolution announced that they have signed 25 year-old Argentine forward Guillermo Hauche from Racing Club. Hauche normally plays in the number ten role on the pitch, and has featured in over 30 matches with teams across both Argentina and Chile. Guillermo had been training with the Revs since September 9th, and worked hard enough to impress even manager Brad Friedel. General Manager Mike Burns really liked the acquisition, stating, “--we were impressed with his skillset. We’re looking forward to integrating him into the team on a full-time basis.”.
A midweek MLS clash saw NYCFC take on the Revs, only this time, the action was live from the Bronx. NYC entered the match sitting in third place, while the Revs had their playoff hopes practically hanging by a thread. The team had failed to win a match since June 30th, and if there was to be any soccer this November in New England, this run of bad form had to stop. An interesting move for manager Brad Friedel on the night, Brad Knighton was given the nod in goal, after Matt Turner’s costly missed punch against Portland last week somewhat caused the team to sacrifice 2 extremely valuable points. Teal Bunbury was given a rest, and 2nd year forward Brian Wright was given the start up top. The University of Vermont graduate had been seen frequently as a substitute this year, and after impressive showings as of late, earned the start.
