A familiar face is expected to be at Red Bull Arena Saturday night.
Former Red Bulls striker Juan Agudelo should be suiting up for the New England Revolution for its MLS match in Harrison, N.J.
Agudelo, 24, was sidelined by an upper extremity injury the past two games.
He recently returned to full training with the Revs with no ill effects.
“I think he’s there,” New England head coach Jay Heaps told www.Revolutionsoccernet.com. “We brought him out today [Tuesday] and he was able to go through all the paces, so I think at this time, both he and Gershon [Koffie] are starting to really push for more minutes.”
Agudelo, who has gotten off to a fine start this season (six goals in 10 matches), kicked off his professional career with the Red Bulls as a Homegrown Player in 2010.
He recorded six goals and two assists in 33 matches with New York.
After complaining about his limited playing time, Agudelo was dealt to Chivas USA in 2012.
