New York City FC midfielder Maxi Moralez was voted MLS Player of the Month for the month of June by members of the media.

Moralez also earned his first MLS All-Star call up and will participate in the game on July 31. He is the first NYCFC player to be voted Player of the Month since David Villa in June 2017. 

The Argentine playmaker scored three goals and recorded six assists across three games in June, leading NYCFC to wins over FC Cincinnati and the Philadelphia Union as well as a road draw at Columbus Crew SC. 

In addition to his league form last month, Moralez helped New York City reach the quarterfinals of the 2019 U.S. Open Cup for the first time in club history with victories over North Carolina FC and D.C. United. 

New York City FC continues their U.S. Open Cup campaign against Orlando City SC Tuesday night, before heading across the Hudson River to take on Red Bulls on Sunday in league play.
