Sounders general manager Adrian Hanauer and coach Sigi Schmid dismissed as rumors the international internet reports that midfielder Alvaro Fernandez will be loaned to Deportivo Cali of Columbia. However, neither said the loan won't happen.
Fernandez was at training today.
Hanauer: There are a lot of rumors swirling about. Clearly we will announce things when they happen. But for now we’ve very happy to have Alvaro Fernandez as part of our team.
Schmid: "I guess when you score a couple of goals rumors talk and talks start. Nothing that I’m aware of right now. Everything’s just rumors. He’s got two goals in our last two league games, so he’s done well from that standpoint."
