New York City Football Club is pleased to confirm that forward Santiago Rodríguez has been awarded Etihad’s Player of the Month for June.

Rodríguez has consistently been a standout player for City in 2024 and that has seen him claim the Player of the Month award for a fifth straight month.

City endured a challenging month results wise with only one win to show for their hard work. Despite that return, Rodríguez was a constant threat in the final third. Starting with a goal against the Columbus Crew in a 3-2 defeat, Rodríguez’s fabulous first touch and finish brought City a goal closer to parity on the night.

Rounding out the month with a brilliant long-range strike against Orlando City SC, it took him to eight goals for the season – his best return in a City shirt to date. Noted for his impressive close control and ability to escape tight spaces with the ball, he is both valued by teammates and feared by opponents.

A worthy winner, the Club would like to congratulate Santi on this achievement.
