The New England centurion has penned a new deal to keep him in the Northeast a little while longer.
New England Revolution have re-signed utility man Chris Tierney to a new contract. As per club policy, details of the new contract have not been disclosed.
At only 27 years of age Tierney is already the second-longest serving player on the Revolution roster, having been with the club since they landed him in the first round of the 2008 MLS Supplemental Draft, 113th pick overall.
So far this season Tierney has notched four assists for the Revolution, who currently sit midway up the Eastern Conference, three points off a playoff spot.
Whilst mostly playing left-back and left-midfield, Tierney has filled in at almost every position across the Revolution’s defence and midfield. His versatility has proved to be one of his most valuable assets, and something that the Revs were keen to hold on to.
“Chris is a very versatile player and gives us a lot of options,” Revolution General Manager Michael Burns told the club’s official website, “He is a great leader on and off the field, and has been one of our most consistent and productive players the last few seasons, so we’re very pleased he’s decided to sign a new contract to remain in New England.”
