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.
