New England Revolution head coach Brad Friedel was scouting in Colombia, according to ESPN reporter David Gutierrez.
Gutierrez tweeted on Saturday that Friedel and assistant coach Marcelo Neveleff traveled to South America to look for new talent. The duo was slated to view Independiente Medellin vs. Envigado and Rionegro Aguilas vs Atletico Bucaramanga. The first game, which took place on Saturday, ended 2-2 while the second ended 1-0 in favor of Aguilas.

This is the second time that Neveleff has been pictured visiting Colombia, as he was also there on Sept. 8. Neveleff, alongside Revolution scout Remi Roy, watched Bucaramanga vs America de Cali. America won 3-2 that day.

The pictures seem to indicate that the Revs are looking to replicate the success they had when they signed Luis Caicedo. Caicedo was on loan from Corporacion Club Deportivo Tulua during 2018 and was one of the bright spots of the season. He recently joined the Revs on a full-time basis.
