Why Toronto FC's Alejandro Pozuelo was the best midfielder in 2019 | Audi Player Index

Heading into the 2019 season there were questions swirling around Toronto FC, after missing the playoffs and losing Sebastian Giovinco. On March 4, Toronto signed Alejandro Pozuelo to a Designated Player deal and in his debut against NYCFC at home, the Spaniard opened his account with two goals and an assist – it seemed the Reds had found their man. In addition to fueling the team to the MLS Cup Final, Pozuelo had a stellar first year:

  • Tied for 6th most assist in MLS (12)
  • 1 of only 9 players to complete 1000+ passes in the opposition half in the regular season
  • 2.4 Key Passes per game (72 key passes in 30 games)

MLSsoccer.com's Matt Doyle and Bobby Warshaw dive in to what makes Pozuelo a special midfielder in the modern game and how he became to be a key cog in the Toronto FC attack.
