Joseph Definitely Wants Out of New England

Soccer New England takes a closer look at the Shalrie Joseph situation in New England, revealing that the former Revs captain (for all of two weeks) expects the club to honor his request to be traded. "We hope they will honor his request," Joseph's agent Ron Waxman said. "We are saying that it is not working out here, please trade him anywhere else."

The Revs, meanwhile, aren't talking. "Obviously, it is their prerogative to go public if they choose to do so, which they did," said Michael Burns, Revolution director of soccer. "However, we arenot going to engage in a dialogue through the media on player personnel matters. We will speak directly with Shalrie on the matter and we'll go from there." Burns wouldn't comment on whether Joseph had either asked to be traded or rejected the team's latest offer, although he did say a solution to the situation wasn't out of the question.

The main discrepancy between the camps comes down to player bonuses. "They offered, honestly, one of the worst bonus packages I have ever seen," Waxman said. He wants to see his client offered another $55,000 in bonuses for achieving certain things like making the all- star team, and being team MVP or defensive MVP, as well as all- league. Later in the article, Waxman discusses his disappointment at the Revs and MLS twice rejecting Joseph's move to Celtic. Read the original story...
