FOXBORO -- After going scoreless for the third straight week, the New England Revolution could be getting closer to the return of last season's top scorer.
Saer Sene has been sidelined by a torn left ACL since last August. The forward has been practicing with the team and feels "100 percent" since undergoing surgery in September. On Saturday, he met with doctors and said he could return as early as next week.
"I don't know exactly (when I can return), but now I got the start from the doctor that I can play," he told CSNNE.com following the Revolutions 1-0 loss to FC Dallas. "I cleared and now let's see how it's going to be."
Saer continued, "I want to play. If it's tomorrow, I want to play tomorrow. I would play today if it's possible, but the doctor said that was too early. I hope next week or soon."
Sene scored 11 goals in 25 games last year. The Revolution have scored one goal in their first four games this season.
