Zlatan Finds Perfect Words To Commemorate Being Voted Most Popular In MLS

For the second year running, Zlatan Ibrahimovic had the top-selling jersey in MLS.

The list of top-selling MLS jerseys 2019 was announced this week and there will be little surprise with the man leading the pack.

Major League Soccer released its annual ranking of top-selling MLS jerseys based on retail sales on MLSStore.com since the start of 2019. For the second year in a row, Zlatan Ibrahimovic was No. 1.

Ibrahimovic’s response to once again being voted most popular in his class was actually slightly more insightful than you might expect, calling his popularity natural and not something for which he strives, but still with that ever-present sense of ego.

Ibrahimovic, who recently had a semi-nude statue of him unveiled in his native Sweden, led the list of top-selling MLS jerseys 2019 that looked pretty similar to 2018, which did not actually look all that much like the 2017 list. There was only one newcomer on the entire list in 2019: Orlando City signing Nani. 

The Seattle Sounders displaced Atlanta United as the team with the most players in the Top 25 with four, despite the controversy over changing the jersey sponsor. Meanwhile, 10 clubs did not have any players in the Top 25: FC Cincinnati, Colorado Rapids, Columbus Crew, FC Dallas, Houston Dynamo, New England Revolution, New York Red Bulls, Philadelphia Union, Real Salt Lake and Vancouver Whitecaps. It’s clear buying a jersey is far more popular in cities like Seattle and Portland than Houston and Philadelphia. 

Read on for the complete list of top-selling MLS Jerseys 2019.
