Hany Mukhtar, the reigning 2022 Landon Donovan MVP Award and Golden Boot winner, faces off against the reigning 2022 MLS Champions, the Philadelphia Union. Nashville SC heads into this game on a six-game home game win streak. They have totally dominated at home and that has been led by the total on-field dominance of Hany Mukhtar. The Philadelphia Union, currently in sixth place, have struggled on the road recently losing three out of their last four, all to teams ranked lower than Nashville. Philadelphia faces an uphill battle here, taking on this Hany Mukhtar-led Nashville SC team, who wants to head into the MLS All-Star break on a high.
There is big news in the Hany Mukhtar world. Just one day ago, Nashville SC received an offer for current MLS league MVP Hany Mukhtar. Hany continues to draw interest from teams across the globe, which isn’t surprising based on his performance for the past few seasons. Nashville’s, but especially Hany’s performance recently, means they really have no reason to sell. Multiple teams have sent high-value offers for Mukhtar in the past, and Nashville hasn’t been swayed by any of them.
Mukhtar’s contract is good until 2025, with a club option for 2026. Selling the best player in the league when you’re in a serious hunt for a league Championship seems crazy and not something Nashville has any plans on.
Hany Mukhtar has played 22 games (19 starts) this season. With 13 goals, eight assists, and a staggering 81 shots, he leads the league in offense. If he takes home these awards again, he would be the first back-to-back, double-winner ever in MLS. Mukhtar was also just named the June 2023 MLS Player of the Month. Hany has also had multiple Player of the Matchday awards this season. I can’t think of any other player right now as hot as Hany Mukhtar, and these stats continue to cement him as the most dominant force in MLS right now.
With an incredible 60 goals and 35 assists in 107 MLS matches, he has the honor of being the most productive player in MLS. Hany also has a number of league records that truly make him one of the greats. He’s the owner of four hat tricks; only five players in league history have more. He also has the record for the fastest hat trick in league history. Mukhtar scored three goals in six minutes versus Chicago in 2021. In addition, Hany Mukhtar was just named to the 2023 MLS All-Star team for the second year in a row. He and teammate Walker Zimmerman are the two Nashville SC players selected for this year’s All-Star team.
Hany has been playing so well that sports media in his home country of Germany, are calling for him to be added to the 2022 World Cup squad. He is truly the most dominant force in Major League Soccer right now. He scores often, is a team player by assisting on even more goals than he’s scored, and has his sights set on not just another Landon Donovan MVP award and Golden Boot but he wants to lead his Nashville SC team to a league Championship.
