Michael Parkhurst is on a run of fine form, and American soccer fans and pundits are not the only ones taking notice.
Parkhurst was named to the UEFA Champions League Team of the Week for the third round of matches after turning in a solid 90-minute effort in FC Nordsjaelland’s 1-1 draw with Juventus on Tuesday. Parkhurst was a sturdy presence in a Nordsjaelland back line that did not concede a goal until the final minutes of the game, and his passing was precise for the most part.
The accolade is the latest in what has been a strong season for the U.S. Men’s National Team defender and it should help him draw more interest as he heads towards the end of his current contract at the end of the year.
What do you think of Parkhurst being named to the Champions League Team of the Week? Impressed with how he’s been performing lately? Hoping to see him move to a bigger club this winter?
