Hany Mukhtar - A Star Is Born in Nashville

by Rich and Laura Lynch

There is a new star in Nashville but this one shines on the pitch instead of on the Grand Ole Opry or Broadway honky tonk stages where most of Music City's stardom arises from. His name is Hany Mukhtar and for the second year in a row he has helped lead the second year football club into the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs. In 2021 - Hany Mukhtar is a strong candidate for league MVP thanks to his standout performance on the field this year.


Hany Mukhtar became a strong League MVP candidate with his breakout second season in the MLS.

In the music industry there is a well-established understanding of the "sophomore jinx". That is - many times a group or artist will release a second album after a hit debut record - only to fail to achieve a similar benchmark or sales of the first offering. Luckily, for Major League Soccer's Mukhtar that was not a concern - not in the least.

The German-born mid-fielder dominates the turf for the boys in gold. He has become a fan favorite and the go-to free kick specialist for the squad. This honor was validated yet again by his game tying strike from a tough angle during Nashville SC's last game of the season against the New York Red Bulls. Fans will never forgot Mukhtar's mid-season "Hany hat trick" that saw the superstar score three times in six minutes to tally the fastest three goals for a player in MLS history.

Mukhtar's 2021 season found him starting 28 games with 31 overall appearances amassing 28 goals and 16 assists during that time to lead the club while winning over the hearts and minds of the Nashville SC faithful. With a name reminiscent of "guitar" perhaps Mukhtar has prospects for a career in music when he finally hangs up his shoes. He is certainly in the right town to make that happen.


Hands up and he's gonna shoot!
