DAVID VILLA WINS BEST MLS PLAYER AWARD

It came as no surprise when New York City FC star David Villa was awarded the Best MLS Player honour by ESPY.


The ESPN network had an annual ceremony where the former Barcelona man was named the winner of the award ahead of his rivals.

FC Dallas star Matt Hedges, Philadelphia Union keeper Andre Blake, Seattle Sounders shot stopper Stefan Frei, and New York Red Bulls striker Bradley Wright-Phillips were Villa’s rivals but he defeated them all to the award.

The separation appears to be amicable as Sounders Owner Adrian Hanauer thanked the manager for his invaluable contribution over the years.

One of the biggest achievements ofSchmid during this period will be qualifying for the MLS play-offs for the last seven consecutive years. He has also led Seattle Sounders to the 2014 MLS Supporters’ Shield and several other U.S. Open Cup titles. However, he leaves the club after having been part of 20 matches in the regular season. The club are currently ninth in the Western Conference table after having taken only 20 points. It is extremely difficult for the club to now finish in the play-offs. This season has been one of the worst in recent memory for Seattle Sounders.
