DATE: 05.07.2016 - SOCCERVOICE - NEWS - SEASON 2016-17

Who are they and where are they playing, the stars of the league over the pond, the MLS
 

They are progressing year by year in the MLS and as we all know the US national team is getting better and better. The NASL that ended in a total crash in the mid 80's after a long period of importing old stars from Europe is not as the MLS.

MLS also have a number of imports, but they are still producing great talent in the US as well. We have taken a look around in the teams and found the following stars. Current top scores Nemanja Nikolic is an interesting player, playing for Chicago Fire.

He joined the MLS club in front of this season from Legia Warszawa and has earlier played for Videoton in the Hungarian league. A player that has gone under the radar at the top leagues in Europe. Nikolic (29) has so far scored 16 goals in 18 games for his team.

35 year old forward David Villa joined New York City in 2015 and has for the last three seasons scored on delivery. 18 goals in his first season, then 23 in the next and the former Barcelona forward has so far this season netted 11 goals in 17 games.

A player to watch is another New York City player, 20 year old Jack Harrison. He operates as a traditional winger, born in Stoke-on-Trent and previously with the Manchester United academy. He has so far scored 12 goals in 39 games for his club.

A player to watch is 23 year old midfielder Julian Gressel. The German is currently playing for Atlanta United, and has so far this season scored three and made five assists. He is a former college player who has made the most of his first season at Atlanta.
