Have you bought a Portland Timbers jersey lately? Because if you have, there’s a good chance that I could guess whose jersey you bought. Major League Soccer released on Friday the top selling jerseys of the 2020 season, with Diego Valeri and Diego Chara ranking 11th and 13th respectively on that list. Carlos Vela of LAFC and Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez of the LA Galaxy had the first and second spot respectively.
Dos Diegos are no strangers to the top 25 list. Diego Chara started making top 25 appearances in 2017, peaking last year with the 11th most jerseys sold in MLS. Valeri has been a regular on the list since 2016, with his 2019 season also seeing the most jerseys sold. He ranked eighth that season.
Since 2016, the Timbers have been regulars on the top-selling MLS jerseys list, averaging at least two players a season on the list since then. You can see the full list of players for this season here.
