CHICAGO - Chicago Fire forward Mike Magee was named Major League Soccer's most valuable player on Thursday, capping a career season with the top individual prize.
He beat out Los Angeles' Robbie Keane, Montreal's Marco Di Vaio, and New York's Tim Cahill in a vote by media, players, and club management. Acquired by the Fire from Los Angeles on May 25, Magee scored 15 goals in 22 games for Chicago. He had six before the trade, bringing his season total to 21.
Vancouver forward Camilo Sanvezzo was honored with the goal of the year for his flying, scissor-kick volley against the Portland Timbers on Oct. 6.
