FOXBORO, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The New England Revolution may have been bounced from the MLS Playoffs a week ago, but Tuesday was one player's moment of glory. Revs midfielder Carles Gil was voted the MLS' 2021 Most Valuable Player, and his fellow players and coaching staff lauded the achievement from Gillette Stadium. Gil lead the league with 18 assists, and his 130 chances created were the most by a player in the league in a decade.

"You just have to shake your head sometimes at some of the things that Carles does out there," Revs President Brian Bilello said. Head Coach Bruce Arena said Gil changed the organization the minute he arrived.

The man of the hour became emotional when he got to the podium: Gil said he learned everything from Arena and his staff, and was quick to deflect credit to his teammates. Before coming to New England, he played for top-flight teams in Spain and England like Valencia CF, Elche CF and Aston Villa FC.
