Sene Suffers Torn ACL

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — New England Revolution forward Saer Sene became the first player for the Revs to score double-digit goals in a season since 2007 on Wednesday evening in a 3-3 draw with Chivas USA. Sene scored two goals in the game and looked a threat before pulling up in the second half grabbing his knee. There was no contact when Sene went down, but the team announed today that the forward tore his anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

The French forward will undergo reconstructive surgery in the near future and will miss the remainder of the 2012 season.

Sene leads the Revolution in scoring – and tied for fourth in MLS – with 11 goals. He also has three assists in 25 appearances. His 11 goals are the team’s highest by a single player since the 2007 season and he is a contender for Major League Soccer’s newcomer of the year award.

Sene signed with the Revolution on February 13, 2012, from Bayern Munich’s reserve team.
