CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago Fire forward Mike Magee has been selected Major League Soccer's Most Valuable Player, capping a career season with the top individual prize.

He beat out Los Angeles' Robbie Keane, Montreal's Marco Di Vaio and New York's Tim Cahill in a vote by media, players and club management. The results were announced Thursday.

Acquired by the Fire from Los Angeles on May 25, Magee scored 15 goals and had four assists in 22 games for Chicago. He had six goals before the trade, bringing his season total to 21 and easily eclipsing his previous high of seven as a rookie with the MetroStars in 2003.
