Revolution sign Runstrom



The New England's Revolution's front line is making way for yet another new face.

The Revs signed Swedish striker Bjorn Runstrom on Wednesday, adding another player to a completely revamped attack. Runstrom joins Saer Sene, Jose Moreno, Fernando Cardenas and Blake Brettschneider as new forwards who have joined the club since the offseason.

The 28-year-old Runstrom had been training with the club during the preseason, as he played in the Desert Diamond Cup and scored a goal against Real Salt Lake. He was most recently on his second stint with Swedish club Hammarby and has had brief stops with Chievo Verona, Fiorentina and Fulham in his well-traveled career.

"Bjorn’s signing provides us another attacking option and some flexibility on the field,” Revolution general manager Michael Burns said in a team release. "He has extensive experience in Europe and he fit in well with our group in Arizona when he was training with us."

What do you think of the signing? Do you think the Revs' forward corps is good enough to compete in the East?
