At least for this week the best player in MLS is…

fagundez

Diego Fagundez!!

That’s right, the Castrol Index’s “Top 20 Players” for this past week was led by New England Revolution midfielder Diego Fagundez- all 18 years old of him.  Thierry Henry was second, Diego Valeri was third.

A third year pro with the Revs who attended his senior prom just over a month ago, Fagundez has become a regular under Jay Heaps and has often been one of the best players on the field this season.  His speed, willingness to take the ball at opponents, and willingness to mix it up with players twice his age- and size!- have made him both a fan favorite and one of the few bright spots in an otherwise sputtering Revolution offense.

Just a little note for USMNT coach Jurgen Klinsmann- Fagundez has already been capped twice by the Uruguayan U20 team, how about calling him up for the Gold Cup, getting him into a match, and making sure he wears the red, white, and blue from this point forward?

Also remember, Thierry Henry, second place is “first loser.”

(Thanks to the Twitter follower who put me onto this story, even if I can’t remember who it was!)
