The New England Revolution announced on Monday afternoon that Teal Bunbury has signed a new multi-year contract, which will keep the 11 year MLS veteran with the club as he looks to move up the organizations all-time goal scoring list.
Teal currently sits in the 8th spot on the all-time scoring list for the Revs, and has quickly earned the respect of coach Bruce Arena. “Teal’s contributions on the field speak for themselves, and he has been an important part of our team’s re-building efforts. Off the field, Teal represents the Revolution in a first-class manner and we are honored that he will remain as a member of the Revolution,” noted the manager who is in his first full year at the helm.
Over his eleven year career, with the last 7 seasons spend in New England after playing 4 seasons in Kansas City, Bunbury has tallied 54 goals and played over 16,500 minutes.
“This is a special moment for myself and my family. This isn’t my first time re-signing with the Revolution, but I think it’s a special time with the place the club is heading,” said Bunbury. With the Rev’s new additions over the last year it’s unlikely that he will see as many minutes as in years past, but he should make for a dangerous option as a substitute who can contribute in the attacking third, and hopefully continue to make a mark on the club that he has spent the majority of his career with.
