Despite his stature, Acosta has been one of the most impactful players on the field for United the past two seasons. The creative dynamo is a wizard on the ball, vexing defenders with all of his moves. Acosta could be one of the most important attackers in MLS in 2018.
OUTSIDE MLS: Acosta is a product of the much-revered Boca Juniors youth academy. He made over 20 appearances with the Argentinian giants before being loaned out to Estudiantes. There he made 27 appearances, scoring one goal.
