Wayne Rooney Comes In Fourth Place In MLS Shirt Sales List

MLS have revealed the top 25 shirt sellers in 2018, with plenty of household names making the list.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has 22 goals in 26 games for LA Galaxy, has cemented his place as the league's biggest star by selling more shirts than any other player in the states.

Across the city, Los Angeles FC's Carlos Vela is in second place. The Mexican has 10 goals in 13 assists for Bob Bradley's side, who are second in the Western Conference after a stellar debut campaign in the MLS.

Atalanta striker Josef Martinez, scorer of 33 goals this calendar year, sits in third, while Wayne Rooney is fourth after tearing up over in the States.

Having been lurched at the very foot of the Eastern Conference table after winning just three games out of 17 prior to Rooney's arrival, England's all-time top scorer has fired on all cylinders to the point where they have now made the play-offs a few months on.

The Manchester United legend has been a complete revelation across the pond, scoring 12 and assisting six in 19 games to help the team climb up the table.

Miguel Almiron, lying in fifth, is the second of five Atlanta United players, with big guns Bastian Schweinsteiger, David Villa, Sebastian Giovinco, Clint Dempsey and Ezequiel Barco completing a star-studded top-ten.
