The Welsh footballer has quickly become the player who sells the most shirts in MLS.
The list of best-selling MLS shirts was released on Monday, with Gareth Bale taking the top spot, ahead of the likes of Christian Fuchs, Carlos Vela, Javier « Chicharito » Hernandez and Josef Martinez.
Through its Twitter account, the North American league posted an image, along with a link to the note on its official website, in which the Welsh international can be seen as the number one shirt seller in MLS 2022. The second place is occupied by Fuchs, an Austrian defender who was once a Premier League champion with Leicester City and who is the captain of Charlotte FC.
In third and fourth are Mexican strikers Carlos Vela of LAFC and Chicharito Hernández of LA Galaxy, who are the captains and leaders of their teams. Bale has only been in Los Angeles for around three months, but the former Real Madrid player’s journey has allowed him to make an immediate impact with the fans.
