Who would have thought that his life would take this turn!

Former Herton Honey Mukhtar, 27, is currently in the United States. Berliner was named Player of the Week in Major League Soccer (playing for Nashville SC) for the fourth time in his career.

It has been two years since Mukhtar made his debut for MLS side Nashville, after which the attacking midfielder has scored 34 goals in 70 games and provided 17 assists. According to official reports, no other footballer in the North American Professional League has won the election by the votes of journalists and fans.

How did this happen?

Mukhtar spent his youth in Hertha, where he was considered a promising talent and one of the DFB’s young believers. He made the U19 European Champion in 2014 under coach Marcus Sork (56). In the final match against Portugal, No. 7 scored the decisive goal (1-0 final score). Former players include Joshua Kimmich (Bayern), Julian Brand (PVP) and Nicholas Stark (Werder).

But even then everything went smoothly – first a loan to RB Salzburg, then he moved to the Danish club Brandby, where he signed a contract worth 1.5 1.5 million in 2017.
