With Manchester United training just a few miles up I-405, there's just no way for Sounders FC to ignore them even as the Sounders prepare for a league match against Colorado on Saturday.
"We havent’ talked about them yet," coach Sigi Schmid said today. "Saturday afternoon we’ll mention them after the game and then we’ll start talking about them on Monday. But obviously the guys are not stupid: They read the press, they pick up the papers, and they know that Man United’s here. I’m sure it’s something everybody’s looking forward to."
