Nashville SC’s Hany Mukhtar has been named Major League Soccer’s Most Valuable Player for 2022. After leading the league with 23 goals to capture the MLS Golden Boot, the 27-year-old German-born forward stands the first in Nashville SC history to win MVP.

Mukhtar also helped his side with 34 goal contributions in 2022, tied for the fifth-most in a single MLS season to inspire Nashville to fifth place on the Western Conference table.

He won the vote with 48.03% of the vote, defeating Austin FC’s Sebastián Driussi and Philadelphia Union’s Andre Blake, who finished in second and third respectively.

Nashville became the fourth expansion club to have a player win MVP within their first three MLS seasons, joining LAFC’s Carlos Vela in 2019, Atlanta United’s Josef Martínez in 2018 and New York City FC’s David Villa in 2016.
