LA Galaxy's Emmanuel Boateng wins MLS Player of the Week

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

LA Galaxy midfielder Emmanuel Boateng has been voted MLS Player of the Week for week eight of the 2016 MLS season.

The 22-year-old arrived to the LA Galaxy during the off-season from Swedish side Helsingborgs IF and received plenty of praise following a stellar preseason.

Now, in only his second MLS start, Boateng was superb, scoring a goal and notching two assists in the Galaxy's 5-2 win over Real Salt Lake.

Boateng's recognition marks the second week running an LA Galaxy player wins the MLS Player of the Week award after Giovani dos Santos won it last week for his two-goal performance against the Houston Dynamo.

The Galaxy next take the field on Sunday when they pay a visit to Sporting Kansas City.
