Adam Buksa came to the New England Revolution as a young, raw prospect from Poland in late 2019. He plans to leave as a proven scorer at both the club level, and the international level, in January of 2022.
It has been quite a quick turnaround for the now 25-year-old forward. Buksa revealed to the Polish media that he would “like for it to happen in January,” regarding his potential transfer back to Europe. But, as Tajon Buchanan also said, Buksa made it clear that he is focused on his current situation in New England. He isn’t planning on letting his move get in the way of the incredible run the Revs have going.
“I would like it to happen in January,” said Buksa. “For today, however, I’m focusing on the here and now.”
Buksa had a slow start in 2020, to the dislike of most fans. His seven goals and assists in 28 appearances were not the production they were looking for from the DP striker. In 2021, he has put up double digits goals already with ten, along with an assist, in 24 matches. Many of those appearances also came off the bench, when a formation switch won Gustavo Bou the lone striker role.
To add to his resumé, Buksa went out and scored four goals for Poland in World Cup Qualifying alongside arguably the best striker in the world, Robert Lewandowski. Leicester City of the Premier League has come up in talks, along with AS Monaco of Ligue 1 in France. We will cross that bridge when we get there, because for now Buksa’s Revolution have unfinished business in the MLS Supporter’s Shield and playoff races.
