Midfielder New England Revolution MLS
Nguyen did not train last week as a protest over his contract, New England Soccer Today reports.
Nguyen was surprisingly left out of the starting lineup last weekend against the Red Bulls, with whispers that he did not train for a non-injury reason. We now know the cause of his benching, though it's unclear what the next step will be, as he hasn't gotten any closer to a new contract. His play this season surely isn't forcing a new move, as he has just one goal and two assists.
