With Alvaro Saborio away on international duty, Real Salt Lake needed a striker to step in and fill the void and Jean Alexandre did just that, registering a goal and assist in an RSL win. The performance made Alexandre the clear choice for SBI MLS Player of the Week honors.
Alexandre edged out San Jose striker Steven Lenhart, FC Dallas' Marvin Chavez and Chivas USA's Marcos Mondaini for this week's honors for leading Real Salt Lake to one of the few victories and multi-goal games in MLS last weekend. A former first-round MLS Draft pick, Alexandre showed off the flash that made RSL draft him in 2009. A defensive midfielder by trade, Alexandre starred as a forward at Lynn University, but until this past weekend, he had yet to flash the goal-scoring ability that made him a first-round target by Real Salt Lake.
What did you think of Alexandre's performance? Who got your vote for this week's Player of the Week honors?
