COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Columbus Crew has mutually agreed to part ways with defender Hernan Grana, granting the player's wish to return home to address family issues in Argentina.
Coach Gregg Berhalter said Grana struggled with adapting to a new country and team.
Before joining the Crew last offseason, Grana spent his entire 12-year career playing for professional teams based in Argentina, including Boca Juniors, Quilmes, Lanus and All Boys located near his hometown of Buenos Aires.
Charlie Davies and Teal Bunbury scored as the New England Revolution held off the previously unbeaten New York Red Bulls 2-1 on Saturday night.
Davies gave the Revolution an early lead with a diving header in the ninth minute, finishing from just inside the 6-yard box on London Woodberry's cross. Lee Nguyen and Scott Caldwell's nifty two-pass combo freed Bunbury to double the lead with a right-footed strike in the 60th minute.
The Revolution improved to 17 points, putting them in a tie for first...
