Au Revoir

After allowing Marko Perovic and Ilija Stolica to walk away two weeks ago, the Revolution waved goodbye to yet another international signing on Friday, as defender Didier Domi was released from his contract.

The 33-year-old French international, who was signed in January to shore up a shallow defensive line, gave the Revs a sound defender who could also push up on the attack.

It certainly looked promising. During the preseason, Domi did well to help the Revs in the possession department, and gave the squad some much-needed bite on the attack.

But it wasn’t long before injuries sent Domi to the sidelines.

He missed the March 20th season opener due to knee swelling, but returned for the home opener against D.C. However, injuries would continue to plague the French international.

In May, strained left quadriceps kept him out on the sidelines for four matches. The following month, he saw action in two matches before Achilles tendonitis sent him back to the trainer’s table.

In total, the French international saw action in nine games, with eight starts. He recorded his only offensive statistic against New York on June 11, when he assisted on Zak Boggs’ goal in a 2-1 loss at Red Bull Arena.

The release of Domi leaves the Revs with 26 players on its roster, four short of the 30-player maximum.
