New England Revolution head coach Jay Heaps was absolutely thrilled after the club managed to land Shalrie Joseph.
Joseph is back with the Revs, where he spent almost a decade between 2003 and 2012, and his re-arrival at the club has Heaps in a positive mood.
"It looked like we were going to get him," said Heaps. "Then it looked like we weren't going to get him. Then there were a couple little things that happened.
"But I think it's good. It's really good to add another veteran voice in [the locker room] and someone that understands this league.
"We've got a lot of young guys. A guy like Shalrie can guide a lot of players in their growth. He has some experience that we're going to call upon at certain times this year."
