Robbie Keane finishes second in MLS MVP voting to ex-teammate Mike Magee

By Adam Serrano

Chicago Fire forward Mike Magee was voted the 2013 Volkswagen MLS MVP award on Thursday with his former LA Galaxy teammate Robbie Keane finishing second in the voting. 

Magee was tremendously succcessful in 2013 as he scored 21 goals and four assists in a year that included a May trade from the LA Galaxy to his hometown Fire who narrowly missed out on the postseason. The 29-year-old ran away with the voting -- which was preformed by club employees, players and media --  earning a weighted total of 98.81 while Keane earned a weighted total of 58.57 finishing second to Magee. Montreal Impact forward Marco Di Vaio and New York Red Bulls midfielder Tim Cahill finished third and fourth respectively in the voting 

Magee becomes the second MLS MVP that did not make the playoffs joining D.C. United's Dewayne De Rosario who won the award in 2011.
