gazdag_10-1

Numbers are something that every player looks at in sports. Batting fourth in a baseball lineup indicates you're a power hitter, wearing the No. 23 jersey number in basketball means you're compared to Michael Jordan. In soccer, the No. 10 jersey is a source of pride and brings expectations. Those expectations will be put onto Philadelphia Union's newest Designated Player as Daniel Gazdag will have a new kit number when the Boys in Blue open training next week.

Gazdag becomes the ninth player in Union history to wear No. 10 and he's earned the prized number after his historic 2022 campaign. Gázdag earned his first Best XI selection after producing a club-record 32 goal contributions (22 goals, 10 assists) in the regular season. In the postseason, Gazdag kept on rolling as he helped the Union to its first Eastern Conference Championship and MLS Cup debut with goals in each contest.

The Hungarian international became the sixth player in MLS history with at least 20 goals and 10 assists in a single season. Of Gázdag’s 61 shots in 2022, he scored on 22 of them for a 36.1% conversion rate – the highest by an MLS player with at least 10 goals in a season since New York City FC’s Frank Lampard (36.4%) in 2016.
