New Jersey-bred striker Jose Angulo has left the New England Revolution after failing to come to terms on a contract with Major League Soccer, a source close to Angulo told SBI.
Angulo has spent most of the pre-season recovering from a knee injury and became a victim of the numbers game as New England has loaded up on forwards, adding young Costa Rican forward Argenis Fernandez and seeing Kenny Mansally emerge as a threat to start for the Revs.
The former St. Benedict’s Prep star never had a chance to train with the Revs this pre-season after suffering a torn meniscus early in camp. New England wanted to see Angulo train with the team before signing him but Angulo chose to leave camp after it became clear that he was unlikely to receive an offer better than a minimum salary deal ($34K a year).
Where will the two-time high school all-american go next? We should find out soon enough.
