Red Bulls logoNew York Red Bulls captain Sacha Kljestan is the Zinédine Zidane of Major League Soccer. In Champions League matches with Anderlecht, World Cup qualifiers for the United States and the MLS Cup playoffs, he’s created, assisted and scored goals with the grace of his idol.

Kljestan, who led MLS in assists the past two seasons, leads the Red Bulls into the Eastern Conference semifinals against Toronto FC, with Leg 1 of the two-game, total-goals series on Monday night at Red Bull Arena.
