Toronto FC star Alejandro Pozuelo named 2020 Landon Donovan MLS MVP


The Major League Soccer (MLS) has named Toronto FC playmaker Alejandro Pozuelo as the 2020 Landon Donovan MVP.

The 29-year-old Spaniard helped guide Toronto FC to the second-best overall record in the league, finishing second in the Eastern Conference behind the Philadelphia Union with his 10 assists and nine goals in the regular season.

Pozuelo was earlier named to the MLS Best XI presented by The Home Depot for a second successive season in 2020 and according to the official website of the MLS, he led the league in chances created (70) and game-winning goals (5). He was also the only Toronto FC player to start every match this season, ranking ninth in the league in minutes played.

The former KRC Genk star thus becomes the second Toronto FC player to win the award after Italian midfielder Sebastian Giovinco was named the 2015 MVP. He is also the second player from Spain to win the award after New York City FC’s David Villa's feat in 2016.
