Where are they now? The First French Connection

Jim Rogash

Everyone has been quite happy with the latest French Connection in the New England Revolution squad, with Saer Sene being the leading scorer and Dimitry Imbongo signed up for another year. It would seem that French is now "in vogue" in Foxboro.

But the first version of the French connection, in 2011, did not leave the same taste in the mouths of Revs fans. Ousmane Dabo and Didier Domi came to Foxboro with high expectations, only to end up as total busts.

Both had great resumes, having played all over Europe. Yet, Domi played only 9 games before being released in July, and Dabo played 3 games before retiring, feeling he was not worth his salary. (Editor's Note: He struggled to stay healthy as well. I can't confirm or remember if he actually said he wasn't worth his salary.)

So where are they now?

Dabo: He is now a businessman, having launched his own brand of clothing called "French Deal." His collaborators include the dancer Steeven Kodjia and basketball player Ian Mahinmi, who plays for the Pacers.

Domi: Since his release from the Revs, he has not been able to find a club.

I wish to all the European Revs busts a conversion a la Dabo rather than a la Domi!
