FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Almost 15 years later, Jozy Altidore and Bruce Arena have been reunited.

The New England Revolution announced Monday that the club had acquired forward Jozy Altidore via free agency and extended the player’s contract an additional year, through the 2024 season.

That occurred after Toronto FC exercised the club’s one offseason buyout. Toronto will remain responsible for a portion of the player’s salary through 2023. Altidore earned a base salary of $2,161,250 in 2021 with a guaranteed compensation of $3,602.250, according to the MLS Players Association.

Altidore, a two-time U.S. Soccer male player of the year with more than 195 career goals and 550 games played for club and country, joins the Revolution for his 11th MLS season. He played for Revs head coach Bruce Arena when both were with the Red Bulls in 2007.

The 32-year-old Altidore has competed in two World Cups, captured MLS Cup MVP honors, won Dutch Cup title, and has made than 200 appearances in European club competition. Now, he is with the MLS Supporters’ Shield winners.

“We welcome Jozy Altidore to the New England Revolution. Jozy is a player we know well and feel confident that he will be an excellent addition to our team,” Arena said said in a statement. “I believe Jozy can continue to be an outstanding goal scorer, and we will work hard to get him back to full fitness and in good form over the next couple of months.”

The Livingston, N.J. native joined New England after seven seasons with Toronto FC, where he was an MLS Cup MVP and two-time MLS All-Star. He was a member of the Reds when they captured the 2017 treble by winning MLS Cup, the Supporters’ Shield and the Canadian Championship. He departed Toronto as the second-leading scorer in club history. For his MLS career with the Red Bulls (2006-08), and Toronto FC (2015-21), Altidore has tallied 77 goals with 25 assists, including nine additional playoff goals, with three goals across 10 appearances in Concacaf Champions League action.

Altidore’s 15-year career on the international stage has seen him accumulate 115 caps, ninth most in United States history. He was the second-youngest player to reach the century mark with the U.S. His 42 goals scored rank third most in program history and first among active players. The owner of five FIFA World Cup appearances between 2010 and 2014, the striker has also tallied 18 times in 41 World Cup qualifying games while participating in four Concacaf Gold Cups. Altidore was named U.S. Soccer’s young male player of the year in 2006 and is a two-time male player of the year honoree in 2013 and 2016.

“I am excited to begin this next chapter with the Revolution and look forward to competing for trophies in New England,” Altidore said in a statement. “I am grateful for this opportunity to reunite with Bruce Arena and look forward to getting to work with my teammates immediately.”

Altidore’s departure from Toronto FC was a messy one. He scored but six goals the past two seasons because of injuries and a disagreement with the club.

On Friday, Altidore telegraphed he was living the club.

“Thank you Toronto and all the fans for a wonderful seven years,” Altidore wrote on Instagram. “To all the staff and my teammates throughout this time, THANK YOU!! Toronto will always be home. Thank you MLSE and Larry and Judy Tanenbaum for all of your support over the years. See you soon and all the very best in the future.”

Toronto FC president Bill Manning wished Altidore the best.

“We want to thank Jozy for all of his contributions to Toronto FC over the last seven seasons. He scored some of the most important and memorable goals during the most successful period in our club history,” he said in a statement. “We wish Jozy well in this next chapter of his career.

“His place in TFC history is secure and our fans will never forget the moments he produced.”
