In today's paper, I wrote about Blaze Nkufo's Tuesday visit to Sounders training.
However, I didn't get in a couple of quotes from the Sounders' current two best-known players.
I'll include those here:
Freddie Ljungberg:"I knew he was a good guy before. Very friendly. And welcome to Seattle. … I think that’s what management saw in the off-season: We needed a goal-scorer and that’s why he’s here. I think they tried to get him earlier on, but Twente wouldn’t let him, and he has to play in the World Cup. We’ll wait till he gets here."
Never miss a local story.
Kasey Keller:"It's great. I accidentally ran into him on Sunday night. Seattle is a big small city. It's just fantastic. He's here to meet the guys and get accustomed. Then has to obviously join up with his squad for the World Cup."
