Seattle Sounders striker Blaise Nkufo was named the MLS Player of the Week following his hat-trick in the 4-0 win over Columbus Crew on the weekend.

The Switzerland international netted his first goals for the Sounders since arriving after the World Cup and was delighted to have broken his drought for his new club in a tough league.

"As a striker you want to score goals and of course the first games I played I for the Sounders I didn't have any possibility for scoring," Nkufo said.

"As I said, in this league it's really difficult for the striker. You need your teammates who can provide the service and that was the case last game for me. I still say it's really difficult in this league.”
