Sounders Insider

Dempsey's Sounders debut expected soon

Clint Dempsey’s debut as a Sounders could come Saturday when the club returns to MLS action at Toronto FC. His home debut is expected to come Aug. 25, when all of CenturyLink Field’s seating area will be opened for the visit from the Portland Timbers.

“Clint will start training with us next week,” coach Sigi Schmid said. “He’s gone through part of preseason already with Tottenham, so he’s a pretty fit guy. He’ll be ready to go.”
