New England Revolution sign Omar González – “Celebrated defender” arrives from Toronto FC


Re-united with Arena 

Major League Soccer club New England Revolution have signed central defender Omar González. The 33-year-old arrives as a free agent after his contract at Toronto FC expired earlier in December. The former US men’s national defender has signed a two-year contract.

“Omar González is a proven winner, with trophies in Mexico and the United States,” New England Revolution head coach and sporting director Bruce Arena said in a club statement. “His experience internationally brings a unique background to the Revolution. We anticipate that Omar will complement our current backline and help build this unit into one of the best in MLS. I look forward to again working with Omar and welcome him and his family to New England.”

The 33-year-old will add significant experience to New England’s backline. González has played 52 games for the United States and featured in 272 games across all MLS competitions. Arena coached González at the LA Galaxy. “I am really excited to join the Revolution and am grateful for the opportunity to reunite with Bruce Arena in New England. Together we enjoyed many successful years in Los Angeles and I am ready to compete for more championships alongside him and my new teammates,” Gonzalez said.
