Stevie G will prove he’s this summer’s MVP (of sorts) in MLS

You can forget your Didier Drogbas, Andrea Pirlos and, erm, Kevin Doyles, because Steven Gerrard is going to prove himself as the best summer signing in Major League Soccer.

That’s what you’ve told us anyway with 44 per cent of voters placing their faith in the Liverpool icon as he continues to find his feet Stateside.

Stevie G has already started with aplomb in his new surroundings, scoring on his recent debut against the San Jose Earthquakes and having a hand in two other goals in a 5-2 win.

But if not Gerrard, then will former Juventus man Andrea Pirlo go on to establish himself as the best buy this summer?

Well, 29 per cent of you think that the Italian king of cool is on his way.

Pirlo came on as a 65th minute substitute and duly set-up two goals on debut to help secure New York City a dramatic 5-3 win over Orlando.

Third in our poll was today’s inspiration, Didier Drogba.

Having just signed for Montreal Impact it’ll be interesting to see the effect the 37-year-old Ivorian striker can have upon the struggling outfit.

And then we have Shaun Wright-Phillips and Kevin Doyle.

Enough said?
