Vini Oliveira, the winner of Sounders SuperSearch on Super Bowl Sunday, is no longer with the team.
Oliveira, a native of Brazil living in Edmonds, did not make the trip to Portland with the team. Neither did defender Mandou Bojang, but it was unclear if Bojang is still on the roster.
Oliveira was never guaranteed a spot on the final roster. He was given a training camp spot and the opportunity to show himself for perhaps other lower-level teams, but his time with the MLS Sounders didn’t last even three weeks. He did go to California with Sounders FC for camp.
