VELA, OTHERS LEADING GOLDEN BOOT CHASE

Mexican forward Carlos Vela has had an injury-hit season over the past two seasons, but it looks like the Los Angeles FC (LAFC) star is finally back to his best after an injury-free start to the 2022 MLS season. His status as one of the best players in MLS football is not in doubt, but he has not been able to stay away from injuries over a long period of time over the course of the last two years. Vela had earlier taken MLS football by storm as he broke and set records until injury struck on a regular basis. MLS football has not been able to witness the best of Carlos Vela for some time until the start of the 2022 MLS season. LAFC fans would be hoping their star player can stay fit throughout the campaign as they have a better chance of achieving great things with him on the pitch rather than in the treatment room.


Vela and two others are presently leading the Golden Boot race for the 2022 MLS season with all three players on four goals apiece. The other two players on four goals in the MLS this season are FC Cincinnati star Brandon Vazquez and Columbus Crew player Lucas Zelarayan. Four other players are on three goals each and they are Sebastian Driussi of Austin FC, Jesus Ferreira of FC Dallas, Daniel Gazdagof Philadelphia Union and Lewis Morgan of New York Red Bulls.

Cristiano Ronaldo, fans and everyone else associated with Manchester United, and neutral football fans may still be just getting used to the fact that the Portugal international superstar made a sensational return to Old Trafford this summer, but there is more to talk about than him coming back to the Theater of Dreams. In his career, Ronaldo has played for Portuguese League side Sporting Lisbon before making his first move to English Premier League giants Manchester United back in 2003 and then followed up by sealing a world-record (then) transfer to Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid. Before returning to United, he had a stint with Italian Serie A giants Juventus and his second chapter as a Red Devil is only set to begin this weekend.

Before Ronaldo left Juventus for United some weeks ago, right after the news broke out that he would be leaving Juventus, reports started making the rounds that he could be set for a shocking move to the United States Major League Soccer. Indeed, here were a couple of clubs in the United States that were clamoring for his signature but it looks as though those clubs were basically trying to sign him mostly for commercial reasons.
