Sounders FC’s Obafemi Martins is one of five nominees for MLS Player of the Month for May, as selected by the staff at MLSsoccer.com.
The award is up for a fan vote here until 11:59 p.m. Wednesday. Seattle’s Clint Dempsey, you might remember, won in April.
The odds might be long for a Sounders’ repeat as Martins had three goals and two assists to lead the team to a 4-1-1 record in May. These honors tend to be stats driven, and guys like Sporting Kansas City’s Dom Dwyer (six goals), New England’s Diego Fagundez (four goals, two assists) and Real Salt Lake’s Javier Morales (four goals, three assists) have better numbers.
