Across State Lines: Anibaba and Bunbury Have Options Picked Up

An update on former Kansas City players.

MLS: Orlando City SC at New England Revolution Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

For many MLS teams, the season is over and the long offseason has begun, that means deciding which options clubs are going to be picking up and which ones they’re going to choose not to. Two former Sporting Kansas City players had their options picked up by the New England Revolution this past week. Jalil Anibaba, who spent the 2015 season with KC, and Teal Bunbury, who was drafted by the club in 2010 had their options picked up. Anibaba started the season for the Revolution on the bench but quickly won one of the starting center back jobs in Brad Freidel’s back line. Bunbury meanwhile hit a career high in league goals with 11 this past year, leading the team in goals for a good stretch of the season before Cristian Penilla passed him late in the season. Both players will now return to New England for the 2019 MLS season.

Here’s the rest of this week’s update.
