thumbnail Hello,

The 27-year-old has stepped up down the stretch for the Union after a rough start to the season.

Major League Soccer has announced that Philadelphia Union forward Sebastien Le Toux has been named MLS Player of the Month for September

After a slow first half of the season, Le Toux has stepped up down the stretch for the Union, scoring seven goals in six matches in September. He scored just once in his first 22 matches, but has now scored nine times in his last eight.

Le Toux received 70 percent of the vote conducted by the North American Soccer Reporters to win his first ever POTM award in MLS. He now leads the Union in both goals (10) and assists (8).

Le Toux will look to continue his hot streak on Saturday when the Union travel west to face the Seattle Sounders at 10 p.m. ET. Philadelphia is currently one point behind first place Sporting Kansas City in the Eastern Conference, but has a game in hand.
