Chivas acquires Joseph from New England
Carson, CA (Sports Network) - Shalrie Joseph's time in New England came to an end on Wednesday as the veteran midfielder was traded to Chivas USA in exchange for midfielder Blair Gavin, a SuperDraft second round pick in 2013 and undisclosed allocation money.
Joseph, 34, spent the better part of nine seasons with the Revs, earning All Star recognition eight times and appearing in 261 games for the club, scoring 37 goals and chipping in 34 assists.
He was also a big part of New England reaching three straight MLS Cup finals in 2005, 2006 and 2007.
"We are very glad to bring Shalrie Joseph to the organization," said Chivas USA's general manager Jose Domene. "He has been one the most consistent players in this league. He brings his experience and he will help us make that final push for the playoffs and hopefully MLS Cup."
Gavin heads to New England having appeared in nine matches for the Goats this season, while his best campaign came in 2010, his rookie season, when he notched three goals and one assist in 16 starts after being selected 10th overall in the 2010 MLS SuperDraft.
