Kevin Molino named MLS Player of the Week

The Loons playmaker was recognized for his stellar play against Atlanta

MLS: Minnesota United FC at Atlanta United FC Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

With 1 goal and 1 assist leading Minnesota United to beat Atlanta United in Atlanta, Kevin Molino was named MLS Player of the Week.

The Trinidadian midfielder again showed against Atlanta what we already knew . . . Give him any time to work the offense and you will pay the price. The big money acquisition had a lot of pressure to perform this season, but he has answered the call with 7 goals and adding 9 assists.

Molino did not feature this weekend against Sporting Kansas City as he is on international duty with Trinidad & Tobago. The Soca Warriors face the United States Men’s National Team tonight, but Molino will not play as he has been suspended because of yellow card accumulation according to Andy Greder of the Pioneer Press.

Congratulations, Kevin! You deserve it!
