Teammates react to Blake making MLS Best XI

Earlier this week, MLS announced its annual Best XI, with Union goalkeeper Andre Blake making the cut alongside the likes of Sacha Kljestan, Sebastian Giovinco, and David Villa, to name a few.

After the news was out, congratulations for Blake came pouring in from fans and teammates alike, with Josh Yaro and Roland Alberg taking to Twitter to offer their compliments.

2016 has certainly been a standout year for Blake – and he shared his excitement over the latest accolade on his Instagram account.

Saying, “Another major accomplishment for me, making the MLS best XI for 2016!!! What a year it has been!!! MLS All-Star team (check). MLS goalkeeper of the year (check). MLS best XI (check). Looking forward to a better 2017!!! Love and support is always appreciated thank you all. Sail on silver bird.”

Well when you put it like that…
