‘Caps Manneh claims Player of the Week award

New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) – Vancouver Whitecaps FC forward Kekuta Manneh
was named the Player of the Week on Monday for Week 33 of the 2013 Major League
Soccer regular season.

Manneh scored his first career hat trick and became the youngest ever player to
record a hat trick as the Whitecaps hammered Seattle Sounders FC by a 4-1 count
last Wednesday at CenturyLink Field.

Manneh opened the scoring for Vancouver just 12 minutes in and found the
net again three minutes before the intermission before completing his hat
trick in the 54th minute to keep Vancouver’s playoff hopes alive for another
week.

The MLS Player of the Week award is selected each week by the North American
Soccer Reporters. The group consists of members of online, print, television,
and radio media.
