- Shalrie Joseph
We heard the other day that New England Revolution midfielder Shalrie Joseph was leaving the club for personal reasons. It turns out those reasons may be due to him entering in the league’s substance abuse program and behavioral health program, the Boston Globe reported late on Monday.
Joseph had missed all but one match for the Revs this season due to a hip injury, but now it is unclear just how long he will be out and in this program.
According to the Globe the club would not confirm or deny anything here.
This is a major blow to the club and to the league really. At least Joseph is getting help, which has to be an important factor here. Its one of those things that we just didn’t know about until this news came out.
The Revs have been able to see some success without Joseph on the field this year but losing him for an extended amount of time may be tougher to overcome. At least for them they are on a three-game homestand right now.
What do you all make of this news? Shocked by it? Happy he is at least getting help?
