The New England Revolution announced that the club has re-signed midfielder Shalrie Joseph.
Joseph, the team's captain, will return for his 10th season with the Revolution. The seven-time MLS all-star will take up one of the team's designated player roster spots.
"Shalrie has spent his entire MLS career here in New England and we are thrilled he’s agreed to return as a Designated Player for us," General Manager Michael Burns said in a press release. "Getting him re-signed was a top priority for us this offseason. We expect that Shalrie will continue to lead this team on the field, but also off the field and in the community, as well, as we move ahead into 2012."
Shalrie finished the past season with a team-leading eight goals, 52 shots and 23 shots on goal.
"I'm very excited to stay in New England,” Joseph said in a press release. "I've made this my home and I can't imagine playing for another team besides the Revolution. I'm looking forward to getting back out on the field next year and going after an MLS Cup championship for our fans and for this city."
Last week, the Revolution re-signed keeper Matt Reis who is a four-time MLS all-star.
