FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Revolution announced today that the team has signed Serbian midfielder Marko Perovic and Bermudian midfielder Khano Smith. Perovic will occupy one of the team’s eight international roster spots and will join the team pending receipt of his U.S. P-1 Visa. Smith, who is a U.S. permanent resident, will count as a domestic player. Per MLS and club policy, terms of the deals were not released.
Additionally, the team has waived Costa Rican defender Gabriel Badilla. With these transactions, the team has reached the 20-player limit on its senior roster.
“We’re pleased to bring in Marko and Khano,” Revolution vice president of player personnel Michael Burns said. “Marko has a tremendous amount of experience in the top levels of European soccer and will give our attack an added dimension. Khano’s re-signing allows us added flexibility and depth in several positions.”
Captain Obvious also wished Gabby Badilla well:
“We want to thank Gabriel for being the biggest waste of half a million bucks in league history since Lothar Matthaeus, who at least sold some friggin’ tickets. Jesus, this guy’s only positive contribution was that he kept the training staff sharp. his time with us, and wish him a slow and painful death the best in his future endeavors,” Burns said.
All right, they signed you know who. So, now my theory is that if we don’t mention his name, maybe Steve Nicol will forget he’s on the bench and never play him.
