1. Maya Yoshida, a contagious leader

When there is a man with leadership characteristics on the field, you notice it. Of course, we can talk about the cunning and effectiveness of players like Billy Sharp or Riqui Puig, but in the specific case of Maya Yoshida, we are talking about something else.

The Nagasaki native usually grants calmness even in a context of disadvantage. Yoshida not only receives the ball and passes it, but also talks to his teammates. He gives directions. It is essential that teams that aspire to win everything have figures of this type. If he maintains a good level and continues to infect his teammates, his mere presence will be essential for the conclusion of the LA Galaxy's regular season.
