The Cafetero-flavored rebuild continues in New England, according to our man Kyle McCarthy. He dropped this on Twitter a little while ago:
New England has signed Colombian striker José "Pepe" Moreno on loan from Once Caldas. #revs— Kyle McCarthy (@kylejmccarthy) February 1, 2012
And as it turns out, Revolution president Brian Bilello had handed out a hint just a bit before that:
We signed a #9 earlier today. Announcement should go out in the AM.— Brian Bilello (@RevsPrez) February 1, 2012
Who's Pepe Moreno, then? A well-traveled (he's had eight teams on two continents over the last half-decade), 30-year-old No. 9 who earned three caps with his country back in 2006.
Maybe not the star name Revs fans were hoping for, but with a loaded midfield, New England doesn't need a star up top. They just need someone to finish all the chances Benny Feilhaber, Kelyn Rowe, Shalrie Joseph et al create.
