Shalrie Joseph, a midfielder who was a finalist for Major League Soccer's MVP award last season, has taken an indefinite leave of absence from the New England Revolution, the team said Monday.
A team news release said he was granted leave to "attend to personal matters." He left the team April 24.
Joseph, 31, was a second-round draft pick of the Revolution in 2002. He scored eight goals in 2009 -- tied for the team lead -- and appeared in 29 games.

Google Translate is not perfect -- we're aware of that -- but it is quite good at getting the main points of the story across. We've successfully used it on The Big Picture, Boston.com's extremely popular world photography site. I'd be eager to hear your feedback on its use in Corner Kicks, in whatever language.
