Keller-Ljungberg 'solved' after (private) talk

Last week, Sounders keeper Kasey Keller publicly criticized teammate Freddie Ljungberg about not being around for the start of training camp.

The two apparently discussed the matter today, although they seemed more determined to keep the details among themselves.

Here's my story from the Tuesday paper. And here's what they -- and coach Sigi Schmid -- had to say about the incident:

Ljungberg: I heard someone talk about it. For me personally that’s to be taken internally, and that’s disappointing someone talking like that. But I solved it this morning as well so we’re all on the same page.
Keller: That’s a management issue however they’re going to handle that kind of stuff. Us as players, we just come out and play with the guys who are here. Guys get injured. Guys are traded. Guys get sold. You never know what’s going to happen. We’re just here to get ready for the season. ... (We talked, but it's private) of course. Which is cool I’d talk with him anyway."
Schmid: “I heard he and Freddie talked about it. It’s a private thing between them. I didn’t notice anything, and if we do we’ll address it.”
