Former New England Revolution striker and Designated Player Jerry Bengston has found a new home fairly close to home.

The Honduras international has signed with Costa Rica giants Saprissa per a team release. Bengston signed with Iranian clubs Persepolis and Zob Ahan after leaving the Revolution in 2015. He scored 15 goals while playing for the two Iranian clubs in a combined 46 appearances.

Saprissa compiled a highlight video welcoming Bengston to the club, which featured a Revs goal against Houston and a Honduras goal against the United States.

Bengston joins a team that has featured in six of the nine total modern era CONCACAF Champions League and were three time champions of the Champions Cup in ‘93, ‘95 and ‘05. Saprissa won both the regular season Invierno (Winter) and Verano (Summer) regular season titles as well as the Invierno Quadrangular, a four team double round robin playoff, that clinched Saprissa a spot in the next CCL.

Bengston also has scored 21 international goals in 52 appearances for Honduras, his last coming in October of 2015 in a friendly against Honduras.
