MLS: New England signs defender Chaka Daley

The New England Revolution has signed defender Chaka Daley from the team's A-League affiliate, the Boston Bulldogs. A four year starter for Providence College, Daley played with Revolution midfielder Paulo Dos Santos for the Rhode Island StingRays of the USL for two years, helping the club capture the 1997 Northeast division championship. Daley played in 13 games for the Boston Bulldogs, then known as the Worcester Wildfire, in 1998 before missing the rest of the season with a broken right foot. This season, Daley has started all 10 games for the Bulldogs, and also appeared for the Revolution in exhibition games versus the Bulldogs and Santa Clara of Portugal. "Chaka proved he can contribute to our team the two times I have seen him play with us," Revolution Player/Coach Walter Zenga said. "He is strong, athletic, and aggressive and gives us depth on defense." In order to comply with Major League Soccer guidelines, the Revs placed defender Manny Motajo on waivers to make roster room for Daley. Motajo appeared in two games for the Revolution in 1999.
