Carlos Vela picked again as MLS Player of the Month
The LAFC striker was chosen as the MLS Player of the Month for the second time in a row. Vela scored five goals and had two assists in April.
Vela achieved five goals and two assists in the five games played in April, keeping an outstanding pace so far this season and helping Los Angeles FC to climb to the top of the overall league standing and the Eastern Conference table too.
The striker leads the top scorer chart of the American League with 11 goals, besides leading the shots chart with six and the shots on goal chart with 24, something that makes him one of the contenders for this season's MVP alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is right behind the Mexican's numbers.
