Nick Rimando Ties Major League Soccer’s All-Time Wins Record
Also celebrates 412th career start, the most of any player in MLS history
The Real Salt Lake goalkeeper can now celebrate his 180th victory in the net, which ties him with Kevin Hartman, former Galaxy keeper, for the most saves in league history.
Not content with this accolade, Rimando has declared that he would like to have the title all to himself and that he will persevere until he gets it.
In addition to celebrating his victory, Rimando also marks his 412th start in goal, which puts him ahead of Hartman in this category. These achievements can be added to the talented player’s long list of victories, including being named an all-star in seven consecutive seasons and owning MLS records for shutouts (126).
The player spoke about his all-time wins record: “It’s a big accomplishment, I think,” he began. “But it’s not just my night. I hold [the record] with a lot of players and defenders that I have played with over the years.
“This year, I wouldn’t say I focused on it, but it was so close that I wanted to have it,” Rimando said of the record. “I want to have those records and put my name on those sheets. It’s nothing personal, just something that I want to get to and it’s so close that I believe I can get there, especially with the team in front of me.”
