With New England Revolution training camp in full force, head coach Jay Heaps continues to try and add talent to the roster. On Monday, Revs GM Michael Burns announced that they have obtained French striker Saër Sène on a free transfer from FC Bayern Muchich. Burns believes that there are big things in store for the Sène in the MLS.
"We had the chance to have Saër in camp with us in Arizona and see him interact with our players both on and off the field," General Manager Michael Burns said. "We believe he'll play a valuable role for us this season. He's scored goals consistently with each of his previous clubs, and we believe he has the ability to continue to do so in MLS." (via ESPN)
Sène, 25, has been around since 2005, where he played for FC Etampes, a lower division soccer team in his home country of France. He then moved to Germany, where he played for both SG Sonnenhof Großaspach and Bayern Munich from 2007-2011. While he doesn't have the marketability that New York Red Bulls striker Thierry Henry or Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder David Beckham have, but Sène and his 86 career goals in the European soccer market can only help the struggling Revs this season.
