In Major League Soccer, where the small salary cap makes versatile players like gold, Brad Evans is a dream of a player. Capable of playing anywhere you need him, and capable of playing well anywhere you put him.
This past week was another example of the qualities Evans brings to the table. He stepped in at right back for the Seattle Sounders and helped them register a shutout in a mid-week scoreless draw vs. Real Salt Lake, then he moved to the left wing and contributed a pair of goals in Sunday’s 3-1 victory against FC Dallas. Evans’ contributions made him the clear-cut pick for SBI MLS Player of the Week.
Evans beat out a field of candidates that included Jimmy Nielsen, Brad Davis and Jack Jewsbury, among others.
What did you think of Evans’ performance last week? Who was your pick for MLS Player of the Week?
