Polish international Adam Buksa has said his farewell to the New England Revolution fans on the back of his transfer to RC Lens in the French Ligue 1. The transfer involving Buksa and MLS football side New England Revolution was officially announced last week with reports claiming that Lens paid around €10m for the transfer. In a farewell video to fans, Polish striker Buksa said he has always felt their love during his time in MLs football.
Buksa, 25, was in attendance at the Gillette Stadium to see the MLS football clash between hosts New England Revolution and Orlando City. He was at the home stadium of New England Revolution to say his goodbye formally. The Polish player watched as New England took their unbeaten run to seven games on the MLS football stage despite the draw with Orlando City. Carles Gil gave the home team the lead on 22 minutes with his fourth goal of the season, but the lead lasted for just 13 minutes before Robin Jansson scored the leveller for Orlando City who are one place and two points better than their hosts on the Eastern Conference standings.
New England Revolution signed Buksa as a Designated Player in December 2019 and he was an important player for the club until his move last week. He scored 29 goals and eight assists in 64 MLS football matches in the colours of the Revs.
Speaking for the last time as a New England Revolution player on the club’s postgame podcast on Wednesday, Buksa said people doubted him in Poland and Europe when he signed for the MLS football club three years ago. He said he’s delighted to have proven them wrong after his improvement and development as a player at New England Revolution. Buksa is certain there would be more transfers from Europe to the MLS.
