His goal total was a personal best for him in MLS. Quioto also scored a goal in the MLS Cup playoffs, on November 20 against the New England Revolution, playing the full 90 minutes.
"We are happy to announce this contract extension for Romell, because it was important that he stayed with us," declared Montreal Impact sporting director Olivier Renard. "All year long he has proved his value on the pitch through his performances, but also with his winning and leader mentality. That's the fruit of his labor, now it's up to him to continue that work in order to achieve the club's goals in the years to come."
Quioto, 29, has played four seasons in MLS, tallying 15 goals and 17 assists in 72 regular season matches during his previous three-year tenure with the Houston Dynamo.
