Jonathan dos Santos has been named Player of the Year by the LA Riot Squad fan group, as confirmed on LA Galaxy’s official channels.
The Mexico international was crowned as the result of an internal poll held by the LA Galaxy Supporters’ Group, ahead of the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romain Alessandrini.
