Progress Report: We check in on how former Revs players from the 2011 campaign are faring at their new jobs. How much are they playing and where?
Earlier this year we took a look at the departed New England Revolution players released in the off-season to see where they ended up. Well it's been almost two months, let's check in on the boys and see where they are, how much they are playing and if so, in what position are they being employed.
All information gathered via TransferMarkt.co.uk.
1. Marko Perovic - Red Star Belgrade, Serbian Superliga
Perovic has played 71 minutes this year, making only one appearance for Serbian side, Red Star Belgrade. No goals, no assists. In his one appearance came in a 1-0 win over Spartak ZV where he played as a left midfielder in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Red Star is 2nd overall out of 16 clubs,and if it remains this way would earn them entrance into Europa League Second Round qualifying. Simply put, it looks like Marko is still working on rehabbing his knee back to 100%.
2. Monsef Zerka - Petrolul Ploiesti, Romanian Liga 1
Zerka has 2 goals, 2 assists in 8 appearances, all starts, playing a total of 540 minutes. Most interesting, he's been playing left striker, up top in a 4-4-2 set up. Petrolul sits in 15th in an 18 club league, where clubs 15-18 are relegated. Yikes!
3. Rajko Lekic - Lyngby BK, Danish Superligaen
Lekic has made one appearance (4/3/2012) in a 2-1 win over FC Midtjylland, coming on as a sub at forward in their 4-2-3-1 set up. According to match reports, he doesn't seem to be consistently making the 18 man roster. Lyngby is currently in 11th out of 12 clubs with the bottom two facing relegation.
4. Milton Caraglio - CSD Rangers Talca, Primera Divisíon Apertura Chile
It's so silly how the Revs advertised him as the club's first DP in hindsight. Caraglio has 5 goals, 2 assists in 12 appearances, all of them starts; totaling 994 minutes. There is no data on what formation Rangers is playing, but we can assume he's playing some flavor of forward. Rangers is currently 8th out of 18 clubs.
5. Ryan Cochrane - San Antonio Scorpions FC, North American Soccer League
The mustached man has started on the back line in all five matches so far in the inaugural campaign for second division side San Antonio Scorpions FC. Currently San Antonio is 2-1-2; having conceded 6 goals through five matches in league play. San Antonio will be competing in US Open Cup this year. Is it possible he could face his former MLS club?
Most interesting stat: The average attendance for San Antonio after three home games is 10,933. The Revs, in contrast, are averaging 9,824.
6. Ryan Kinne - CFC Azul, USL-PDL
After seeing action in only one match for the Revs in 2011, he was waived this off-season and has since popped up with Connecticut based, CFC Azul scoring in the first match of their inaugural season. USL-PDL is the fourth tier of the US Soccer pyramid.
