Carles Gil has signed a contract extension with the New England Revolution, keeping the Spaniard at the club through 2024.
Gil joined the Revolution in 2019 as a designated player, and has since then played an integral role in the team’s success. His ability on the ball is so smooth, excelling in all areas of the pitch. As one of the league’s top playmakers, Gil expressed his gratitude for the team.
“Since I arrived in Boston more than two years ago, this city has become my home and the fans and my teammates have become my family,” Gil said. “Playing for the New England Revolution has been one of the highlights of my career and it is my ultimate goal to bring an MLS Cup championship home to our supporters.”
Gil currently leads the league in chances created and dribbles completed, while tied in assists with four. He is also second in dribble success rate and passess ending in the final third.
With his help, the Revolution is currently leading the Eastern Conference.
“It’s critical that we have Carles around for many years," head coach and sporting director Bruce Arena told media.
"It’s a difficult position to fill, the skills required to play the position is very demanding. Not many teams in the league have players of Carles’ caliber. We’re real pleased he’s going to be with the New England Revolution.”
Gil struggled last season with several injuries that halted him from stepping on the pitch. Despite the setbacks, the Spanish forward has started all seven games for the Revolution thus far this season, impacting several stats game-wide. But he insists improvements are to come.
"I’m so happy to sign this new contract," Gil said. "Since I came here, there were many reasons I took this decision. I want to continue, to improve and to learn, and of course, win some trophies.”
