The New England Revolution have announced a two-year contract extension for Gustavo Bou through the 2023 season. The 31-year-old will continue to occupy a Designated Player and international roster slot.

The Argentine forward has been a key player for the Revs since joining from Liga MX side Tijuana in 2019 and stands as second in MLS for combined goals and assists during that time.

This season alone, Bou hit 15 goals as the Revs won the Supporters' Shield, setting a single-season points record along the way. Bou formed great partnerships with fellow New England forwards Adam Buksa and Tajon Buchanan, as well as playmaker and MVP favorite, Carles Gil.

“Gustavo has been an essential part of our team since his arrival in 2019 and he has proven to be among the league’s most prolific attacking players,” Revolution sporting director and head coach Bruce Arena said in an official press release.

“We are pleased to extend Gustavo’s tenure here in New England and look forward to his continued contributions to our team.”

By finishing first in the overall standings, the Revs have earned their way straight to the Eastern Conference semi-finals on Tuesday, November 30th. They await the winner of NYCFC and Atlanta United's Round One match-up at Yankee Stadium.

Bou will be vital to New England's chances of becoming just the eighth team to win an MLS Cup and Supporters' Shield double. In five post-season starts, the forward has hit the net three times, assisting another goal along the way.
