When it rains, it pours.
Not even 12 hours after announcing that the team had signed an international center back using Targeted Allocation Money, New England Revolution club president Brian Bilello announced the acquisition of a second international center back using Targeted Allocation Money.
Added another new international CB using TAM. Will also be able to announce and have him here this week.— Brian Bilello (@RevsPrez) January 23, 2017
The news is nothing short of blissful for Revolution fans, who have endured a quiet off-season up to this point. Before today, the club’s most notable transfer moments came in the form of re-signing Daigo Kobayashi and making three picks in the MLS SuperDraft.
The defensive reinforcements will certainly be welcomed as the team previously only had four defenders on their roster, six if you include Donnie Smith and Zachary Herivaux.
Little is known about the team’s newest acquisitions, though Bilello has promised more information later this week. The Revs opened preseason camp today and will hold two practice sessions tomorrow. Tomorrow will also mark the first media availability of the year, which will surely provide some answers.
