Last week the New England Revolution traded its captain Shalrie Joseph to Chivas USA. The midfielder hadn’t played for any other team since joining Major League Soccer and it was thought that he’d finish out his career in New England after signing a contract over the winter with the Revolution and became the team’s second Designated Player in team history. This of course was before the former captain’s relationship with the Revolution’s new coach Jay Heaps became “rocky”.
Now, since the trade, New England has lost two games at home. On Sunday night, both his old team and new team were frustrated. Neither side looks that great since the trade, which should have benefited both teams if you believe both front offices.
In his first appearance with Chivas, the Los Angeles Galaxy ran riot over the Goats, beating them 4-0 at the Home Depot Center on Sunday night.
At Foxborough, the New England Revolution couldn’t break the Montreal Impact’s defense and Sanna Nyassi ran close to 80-yards and embarrassed the Revolution midfield and defense for the game’s only goal.
