Three former New England Revolution players have found homes, as Femi Hollinger-Janzen, Cristhian Machado, and Nicolas Samayoa have signed with new clubs.
After three years with the Revolution, Femi is heading to the USL Championship to play for Birmingham Legion FC. The move reunites Femi with Jay Heaps (GM of the Legion), who drafted the striker out of Indiana. Femi scored two goals in 32 appearances while playing in MLS.
It looks as though Machado’s future has been settled, as the midfielder will return to Bolivia to play for Royal Pari. Machado only played three games for the Revolution, though two were starts. He signed on Jul. 23 after a lengthy pursuit.
Samayoa has joined Comunicaciones FC of native Guatemala. The defender was drafted in the fourth round of the 2019 SuperDraft but didn’t make any league appearances for the Revolution. He made his professional debut in a U.S. Open Cup game against Louisville City FC. Soon after he went on a short-term loan to the Las Vegas Lights.
