Sporting KC defender Graham Zusi among best-selling MLS jerseys for sixth straight year

For the sixth consecutive season, Sporting Kansas City defender Graham Zusi finds himself on the list of best-selling adidas jerseys in Major League Soccer.

The annual rankings are based on overall retail sales of adidas MLS jerseys on MLSstore.com between the start of 2019 and the end of the 2019 MLS regular season. Zusi’s kit ranked 24th in sales this season, making him the only player to appear in the top 25 list of best-selling jerseys every year since 2014.

LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic finds himself atop the list for the second straight year, followed by another pair of prolific forwards in No. 2 Josef Martinez (Atlanta United FC) and No. 3 Carlos Vela (LAFC). D.C. United’s Wayne Rooney and Chicago Fire’s Bastian Schweinsteiger round out the top five.

Zusi is one of seven American players in the top 25 alongside Jordan Morris, Cristian Roldan, Chris Wondolowski, Sebastian Lletget, Brad Guzan and Jozy Altidore. The top 25 best-selling player jerseys for 2019 are as follows:
