Midfielder/defender is in his sixth MLS season.
The New England Revolution have re-signed Chris Tierney, making sure they keep hold of their second longest tenured player, MLSsoccer has reported. The versatile midfielder/defender has been at the Revolution since 2008 after being drafted in the first round of the MLS Supplemental Draft.
Tierney has recorded at least four assists in each of his last four seasons with New England Revolution, providing five last year. Last season he also made a career-high 26 starts, and has five career goals to his name.
New England Revolution lost 1-0 to Toronto FC on Saturday after a Matias Laba goal proved enough, but were unfortunate not to score, having two attempts cleared off the line by Ashtone Morgan and Richard Eckersley. Tierney saw a long range effort clip the crossbar in his team’s search for a goal.
The Revolution travel to Kansas to take on Sporting Kansas City on Saturday, hoping for three points which will keep them in contention for the play offs, but it will be no easy task against a team sitting second in the Eastern Conference.
