Did he just retire or is he leaving the Revs? I am very confused by this.

jermainejuniorI am so thankful what has happened in one and a half years with the club, the teammates & fans, the city of Boston! I appreciate the love from everybody! I'm going home now and finally enjoying my family! Very excited to see what will be the next step in our life!

His contract is up. We will see if the Revs will pay him or if they trade him or if he goes back to Europe.

He should go back to Europe if he wants more money. He should stay if he is willing to take a pay cut.

It seems like he won't be returning but you never know. Doesn't help that he'd be suspended for some games at the start of next season.

I wonder where he ends up next.

At this point in his career, I highly doubt he would be making much more at a European team compared to an MLS team.

If he wants money, he should sign somewhere in Asia.

He still thinks he's worth good money...I don't think he's going to get it unless he goes to Asia or the Middle East...tough mental transition for him...age and injuries always take their toll. His will is so strong, I can see him having a real tough time with that reality.

I just feel there are more options in Europe for obvious reasons to get the money he wants. MLS has 20 teams but really how many are in a position to pay him the money he wants? That is why I am saying he may have to take a pay cut if he wants to stay here. I would not be opposed to him going to Asia or the middle east because they are willing to spend the bucks to grow their league. Also, his skill set would no diminish in those leagues as he is known to be very skillful rather a hard-working, high effort, high motor player with an occasional rocket of a shot.

Asia and middle east will be the ones offering the money european clubs will be put off by age and the fact that he only played 19 games this year for new england. Mabye turkish leagues might offer him money but the major european leagues do not spend big bucks on over the hill midfielders. Maybe he lucks out and a owner overpays for him in europe but I doubt it. Also he will be facing possible suspension in mls if he stays in mls which I doubt for six games for shoving referee which means he will miss the WCQ in march if he is still playing in mls or not.

I hope thats not true. No offense to the guy but thats the type of player that I was hoping MLS was moving away from.

He was very good in 2010-2012 but has clearly been on the down slope. He's now out of favor at Newcastle, and hasnt repped Ivory Coast this year at all. Revs dont spend a lot of money (annually at the bottom third, even with Jones on board) and Id hate to see a large allocation of money spent on him.

MLS should be targeting international starters or younger (25-28) guys who are on the cusp of breaking through.
