ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - Major League Soccer has announced the top 25 selling Adidas jerseys in the league sold on the MLS store, and several St. Louis players are among them.
It was no surprise to most that Lionel Messi, of Inter Miami CF, holds the top spot in jersey sales. But not too far behind him is CITY SC’s own João Klauss, who ranked second in jersey sales for the 2023 season, according to MLS. Klauss missed a decent chunk of the year with an injury, but despite that, was able to finish right behind the legendary Messi and ahead of all other MLS players. St. Louis CITY SC, and Inter Miami CF, who are pushing for a place in the Audi 2023 MLS Cup Playoffs, each have three players in the top 25.
In addition to the big forward, midfielder Eduard Löwen ranked ninth, behind Thiago Almada of Atlanta United. And just five spots below him; the powerful defensemen Tim Parker, who ranked 14th.
