Markus Holgersson, Joel Lindpere, Make ProSoccerTalk.com's Team of the Week

By Frank Della Femina

Red Bulls defender Markus Holgersson and midfielder Joel Lindpere cracked ProSoccerTalk.com's MLS Team of the Week for Week 11.

This is now the second consecutive week Lindpere has been considered for Steve Davis' Team of the Week, as both he and Dax McCarty shared the honors in Week 10.

Davis writes of Lindpere:

Lindpere and Chara were workhorses in their matches, covering ground, shutting down the opposition danger men, interrupting passing lanes, that kind of stuff. Important stuff, for sure.

Further proof that Lindpere doesn't always have to crack the score sheet to make his presence known on the pitch, although his two goals over the last four matches isn't anything to shy away from either.

This is Holgersson's first week in which he's been included in the weekly honors. Davis writes:

Holgersson continues to gain the steadiness he lacked early, and in Saturday’s win at Montreal – the Red Bull’s fifth in a row – he had the added duty of breaking in newly arrived Heath Pearce as a central partner along New York’s back line.
