The Sounders have signed goalkeeper Andrew Weber, giving coach Sigi Schmid the veteran reserve goalkeeper he has indicated he would like.
“Andrew adds a goalkeeper who has had Champions League experience with Montreal and who has been in MLS for the last few years,” Schmid said in a Sounders release. “Obviously our goalkeeping situation has changed dramatically from last year with Kasey Keller retiring and Terry Boss having to retire. We are happy with our goalkeepers, and adding Andrew Weber gives another capable keeper.”
Weber, 28, has been training with the Sounders throughout camp. He played three seasons with San Jose after starting his MLS career in 2005 with DC United. He also hass played with Montreal in the USL and played in one CONCACAF Champions League match in 2008.
