Newcomer, Omar Browne may have hogged most of the local love at the weekend, but after two clean-sheets in five days, Impact ‘keeper, Evan Bush was named MLS Player of the Week on Monday.

Naturally this gets him a starting place between the posts for Team of the Week (week #9), the second such accolade he’s earned this season.

Bush has now had 5 shut-outs in his last 6 matches, as he chases his own Impact record of 10, for the regular season, set only last year.

It’s also a second this season for Impact’s Remi Garde, who again is named MLS Coach of the Week for the sixth time overall since coming into MLS in March 2018, a quite remarkable achievement for the Frenchman. He’s won this nomination three times more than anyone else during his MLS career.

Zakaria Diallo, pivotal in central defence as Impact blanked New England and Chicago Fire, was nominated for a place on the bench in Team of the Week. I’m certain his coach would favour giving him a run-out in the second-half in this vitual line-up.

The MLS Player of the Week is chosen after every week of play in the regular season through a popular vote and a vote from media representatives. Votes from the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR) make up 75% of the vote, while 25% is attributed to the popular vote.
