Donovan named May’s MLS Player of the Month By Steven Sandor Posted on June 4, 2011 Comments Off on Donovan named May’s MLS Player of the Month 0 505 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Landon Donovan Just hours after Landon Donovan was named the MLS Player of the Month for May, the Los Angeles Galaxy showed how badly it will miss him over the next few weeks. Donovan got the nod by leading the ballots cast by the members of the North American Soccer Reporters. Donovan scored six goals in the month of May, as the Galaxy surged to the top of the Western Conference, albeit by playing a heck of a lot more league games than the recognized big dogs on the block, Real Salt Lake. Donovan leads MLS with eight goals. But the poster boy of U.S. soccer is with his national team as it prepares for the Gold Cup — and his presence was felt as the Galaxy played D.C. United to a dire 0-0 draw Friday night. How The 11 voted: Donovan. With injuries to Real Salt Lake’s Javier Morales and FC Dallas’s David Ferreira, Donovan is the clear leader for the Most Valuable Player Award as we reach the one-third mark of the MLS regular season.
