Congratulations to Atlanta United forward Joseph Martinez.
Our SIgn1News crew was there to hear the announcement that Martinez has been named Major League Soccer’s most valuable player.
Martinez shattered the MLS single-season scoring record with 31 goals this year.
He is also the first player in Atlanta United history and the first Venezuelan in league history to win the award.
On Saturday, the Atlanta United will play the Portland Timbers for the 2018 M LS championship.
