The New England Revolution just keep making moves this offseason as The Athletic has reported that the club has signed free agent Emmanuel Boateng.
Boateng has been stateside for five years now after coming over from Sweden. Who was the man who brough him over? None other than Bruce Arena. Boateng spent four seasons with the LA Galaxy before moving to D.C. United in 2019.
In 2020, Boateng spent time with both D.C. United and the MLS Cup winning Columbus Crew. He had 12 appearances and was only able to register an assist.
In his MLS career, the soon to be 27 year old has nine goals and 14 assists in nearly 125 appearances.
Revolution fans will enjoy watching Boateng race down the pitch. He was a track star in high school after all.
As The Athletic mentioned he seems like a perfect candidate to come off the bench and be a solid depth option.
Arena mentioned at the end of the season that he wanted to make some acquisitions and it’s fair to say that he accomplished what he set out to do. The question is does Arena and the club want to continue to break out the checkbook or does he believe that the roster is all set after his latest move?
