FC Dallas' Ferreira named MLS MVP
Colombian midfielder David Ferreira, whose attacking prowess guided FC Dallas to its first appearance in the MLS Cup, was named the league's most valuable player Friday in Toronto.
Ferreira received 20 percent of the vote, which included players, coaches, general managers and reporters. Los Angeles Galaxy striker Edson Buddle was second at 18.3 percent and San Jose Earthquakes forward Chris Wondolowski, the league's scoring champion, was third at 14.6. Last year's recipient, Los Angeles midfielder-forward Landon Donovan, was fourth at 11.9 and Philadelphia Union forward Sebastien Le Toux fifth at 8.9.
Ferreira, in his second MLS season, had eight goals and 13 assists, second in the league this season. The last Dallas player to win the award was forward Jason Kreis in 1999.
