In the 2023 Major League Soccer MVP voting, Luciano Acosta easily defeated fellow countrymen Lionel Messi and Thiago Almada to win the prize.
With 18 goals and 12 assists this season, the FC Cincinnati midfielder has had an incredibly successful year and still has a chance to lead his team to the MLS Cup.
With a massive 60.37 percent of the vote, Acosta handily defeated LAFC forward Denis Bouanga (14.97%) in second place and Thiago Almada (6.46%).
This marks the first time an athlete from Cincinnati participating in a major league sport has been selected MVP since Joey Votto, who did it 13 years ago in 2010.
It should come as no surprise to supporters of FC Cincinnati and possibly Major League Soccer in general that Acosta is this year’s league most valuable player. He has won several MLS awards this year as well.
After Acosta joined FC Cincinnati in March 2021, the remaining games have been historic. He has been one of FC Cincinnati’s greatest players and top scorers ever since he joined the team.
We are now seeing the development of Inter Miami, which will be a power in the league at the start of the next season.
Inter Miami CF’s head coach, Gerardo “Tata” Martino, has declared that the Club is once again interested in bringing in former teammate Luis Suárez during the upcoming winter transfer window.
Martino stated that the team is still interested in signing the 36-year-old Uruguayan during a press conference the day before Miami’s final MLS home game, which ended in a 2-2 draw with Charlotte FC.
