[Vela easily beat out Zlatan Ibrahimovic of the L.A. Galaxy, Josef Martinez of Atlanta United FC and Maxi Moralez of NYCFC by receiving almost 70 percent of the combined vote by the players, clubs and media] It’s a pleasure. It’s a privilege to be the MVP of the league. It’s the reward to all my effort, my work I make every day. And this is a trophy for all the club, all my teammates, for me, for my family. So, I’m really happy to be the MVP
