Diego Chara might not be the most glamorous player, but he’s certainly among the most valuable. The diminutive holding midfielder is routinely at or near the top of MLS in tackles, and he brandishes his marking ability with an unmatched ferocity. A terrier tracking attackers and adept at restarting attacks, he'll continue patrolling Portland's midfield in 2021.

INTERNATIONAL: Chara has been capped twice for the Colombian national team.

OUTSIDE MLS: Chara first made his mark with Deportes Quindío in his native Colombia, where he made 124 appearances from 2004-2008. After stints with two more Colombian clubs over the next three years, Chara made his way to MLS.

NOTES: MLS Best XI (2020)
