Steve Ralston, a midfielder and team captain, has decided not to return to the New England Revolution this season, the team confirmed Friday.

“Steve Ralston has been a tremendous player, leader and ambassador for the New England Revolution since he arrived in 2002. In eight years with us, Steve has been a central figure in lifting the team to new heights of success," the team said in a statement to the media Friday. "While we wish we were welcoming him back on Monday when the rest of the team arrives for the start of preseason, we want to thank Steve for all of his contributions and effort on our behalf – both on the field and off the field – and wish him and his family nothing but the best in all of his future endeavors."

Ralston is Major League Soccer's career leader in assists with 135, appearances (378), starts (372) and minutes (33,143), and he played in all four of the Revolution's MLS Cup games. The seven-time all-star was sidelined in 2009 by a torn ACL in his knee.

Ralston has 36 appearances on the US national team.
