Carles Gil was named Major League Soccer’s MVP 2021

Major League Soccer announced New England Revolution player Carles Gil as winner of the 2021 award for Landon Donovan Most Valuable Player.

Gil managed an excellent season, scoring four goals and 18 assists to inspire the revolution to record numbers of 73. Although the New England team was eventually eliminated by MLS Cup finalist NYCFC, the team lifted the Supporters Shield.

After a historic season, the midfielder captures the moment for all that is.

“A lot of emotions in my head,” Gil said. “You do not have such good moments that make you value these moments. Sometimes we do not value these moments enough. But I thought a lot about my family and my friends who are far away from me, back in Spain. In general, a lot of emotions.”

Gil has been the key to New England’s resurgence this season, leading the league’s best attack match after match.

It was not always easy for Gil, who missed most of 2020 with an injury after arriving in New England after a visit to the Spanish second division.

Now the midfielder is at the top of the league.

“I came here in a complicated moment,” Gil said. “I did not like the field and I did not perform as I wanted. So I came here looking for something else. I came here hoping to find myself again and fast forward three years later, I’m happy, I enjoy it and I give the best version of myself. ”

Although the award is a great achievement for Gil, the 29-year-old is not ready yet. With his team eliminated early in the postseason, he wants to take home the MLS Cup 2022 while improving as a player.

“It’s important to stay on the same line and keep improving,” Gil said. “Every year we continue to bring in fantastic players. We know we have a tough loss with Tajon [going to Club Brugge], but we must continue to improve. I am sure we will continue to be a winning team and hope to fight for everything again next season. “
