L.A. Galaxy forward Robbie Keane wins MLS MVP

L.A. Galaxy forward Robbie Keane has been voted Major League Soccer ‘s 2014 Most Valuable Player, the league announced Wednesday following a vote of its players, club officials and media, edging Seattle’s Obafemi Martins for the top spot.

Keane had the highest combined goal and assist total in the league this season — with 19 of the former and 14 of the latter — while Martins set a club record with 17 goals and added 13 assists.

Martins also dished out the go-ahead assist in Seattle’s 2-0, Supporters’-Shield-clinching victory over L.A. on the final weekend of the regular season, a match Keane missed due to injury.

Lee Nguyen finished third in the voting. The New England midfielder had 18 goals and five assists, the creative fulcrum behind the Revolution’s surge to the MLS Cup final who earned a call-up to the U.S. men’s national team late in the season.

More details and reaction to follow.
