Former Hull City forward Adama Diomande becomes an MLS record-breaker

Adama Diomande continues to fly high in the City of Angels after becoming an MLS record-breaker over the weekend.

The former Hull City forward netted a 30-minute hat-trick as his LA FC side beat Philadelphia Union 4-1 on Saturday night, extending a fairytale start to his life across the Atlantic.

Not only did Diomande become the first player in the club’s short history to net a treble, it also ensured he has now enjoyed an unrivalled start to life in the MLS.

Seven goals in five games is an impact never seen before in the US league’s 23-history, establishing Diomande as an instant hero at the Banc of California Stadium.

Even Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who joined cross city rivals LA Galaxy in March, has been left in the shade by Diomande’s remarkable introduction since leaving City in late April.

Having previously scored against Dallas, San Jose and Columbus Crew, the Norway international netted three goals against Philadelphia as his reunion with Bob Bradley continued to fire Los Angeles up the league ladder.

“I really don’t care about the numbers, I’m not that guy,” said Diomande on Saturday. “I’m just going into training everyday smiling with my teammates. It’s just a bonus to get that history. It’s a plus in my book.

“I always have confidence in myself. I’m still adapting but I’m just happy to get the goals early. Finally I have a coach who believes in me.”
