Sounders FC’s Clint Dempsey voted MLS Player of the Week — again

Sounders FC’s Clint Dempsey has been named MLS Player of the Week for his two-goal performance in Saturday’s 3-2 road win against Western Conference-leading FC Dallas.

Dempsey, of course, also won the award last week, as voted upon by the North American Soccer Reporters. He is the first Sounder to claim the honor back-to-back, the 13th player in league history. New York’s Thierry Henry once won it three straight times in 2012.

Seattle, as a team, hadn’t claimed the Player of the Week in consecutive weeks since 2011. Dempsey, the leading scorer in MLS with six goals, has won the award four times, dating to his time with the New England Revolution.

Sounders coach Sigi Schmid was asked after Saturday’s game if Dempsey ever ceases to amaze him.

“No, he doesn’t,” Schmid said. “There were a lot of people that were saying, ‘He’s out of form. He’s not there right now.’ I think he’s put to rest some of those people right now.”
