No surprise: Clint Dempsey named MLS Player of the Month after fan vote

Seven goals and two assists in four games? Yeah, that production took away much of the drama in April’s MLS Player of the Month race, which Sounders FC’s Clint Dempsey won overwhelming — claiming 84.3 percent of a fan vote.

It helped that Seattle also went 3-0-1 and jumped into a first-place tie on points.

Dempsey’s seven goals are the most in a month since ex-Sounder Sebastien Le Toux scored seven with the Philadelphia Union in September of 2011 (albeit in six games instead of four).

Here were the results via MLSsoccer.com:

Final Results:

  1. Clint Dempsey (SEA) 84.3%
  2. Fabián Espíndola (DC) 5.67%
  3. Bradley Wright-Phillips (NY) 4.65%
  4. Robbie Keane (LA) 3.58%
  5. Bobby Boswell (DC) 1.8%
