Guillermo Barros Schelotto, a midfielder from Argentina, was named Major League Soccer Most Valuable Player on Thursday after helping the Columbus Crew reach the league's championship match.

The 35-year-old playmaker, who played 196 games over 12 seasons for Boca Juniors before joining the US league last year, was honored in a vote of MLS players, coaches, executives and media.

Schelotto received more than 54 percent of the vote with American Landon Donovan, a Los Angeles Galaxy forward now on loan to Germany's Bayern Munich, second on 19 percent and Mexico's Cuauhtemoc Blanco of Chicago third.

Schelotto led the Crew to a league-best 17-7 with six drawn record and Columbus will face the New York Red Bulls here Sunday in the MLS Cup league championship final.
