Makoun’s MLS career is quite short. Makoun appeared in 30 matches for Inter Miami where he notched two goals over 2,209 minutes of action throughout the 2020 and 2021 seasons. The 22-year-old then was acquired by Charlotte FC and appeared in 15 matches for Charlotte across Major League Soccer and the US Open Cup.
With the Venezuelan just joining the Revs, a lot is unknown about how Makoun plays and what role he could play in New England. So let’s hear from the fans and experts who watched Makoun play this season down in Charlotte.
@cltcfantv believes that Makoun isn’t a starter and not someone he was impressed with.
I was not impressed with him... glad he's found a new home.. he's young so there is that... but we appreciate the donation.— CLTFC Fan TV (@cltfcfantv) August 3, 2022
Tyler Trent believes that Makoun has some potential.
Lot of potential but looked shaky for Charlotte this season and basically didn’t play under Lattanzio.— Tyler Trent (@TTrent4) August 3, 2022
My man Topbin90 (who does a great job covering Charlotte FC) also wasn’t too high on Makoun.
He’s young and there is still potential for him to turn into a decent CB. I’ll leave it at that— TopBin90 (@Topbin90) August 3, 2022
If Revs fans are looking for a more positive outlook, take a look at what Brett had to say.
He's taken penalties for us when Fuchs wasn't on the field. He's young, and I think he's better than people give him credit for, but he probably won't be locking down a starting position in the short term.— Brett (@repiptterb) August 3, 2022
So Makoun will be an interesting signing. Hopefully he can live up to that potential in New England.
