Dimitry Imbongo, who played the role of the Revolution’s “other” blonde-mohawked forward during his time in Foxborough, joined Austrian second-division side Kapfenberger SV (KSV) on Monday.

The 24-year-old spent three seasons in New England, where he scored four goals and added four assists in 32 matches. He joined the club during the summer of 2012, reportedly at the suggestion of another forward with a bleached mohawk – Saer Sene.

Aside from his distinct hairstyle, Imbongo – who wore number 92 – was also known for his penchant for attracting the referee’s attention. In 2013, he collected five yellow cards and three red cards in 21 games, an unusually high frequency for a forward.

He was expected to shoulder some of the load up top after Juan Agudelo left the club after the 2013 season, but failed to assert himself as rookie Patrick Mullins and veteran Charlie Davies both passed him on the depth chart. Following the 2014 season, he was traded to the Colorado Rapids, who promptly waived him.

Imbongo was one of three forwards KSV acquired on the final day of the transfer window. Slovene David Poljanec and the Brazilian Jorge Elias dos Santos were also acquired by the club. The Falcons currently sit eighth on the Austrian First League table with 22 points.
