Sounders FC responds to Colombian news report

The previous blog post contains translation of a news report in El Tiempo, a widely-read daily newspaper in Colombia, that has Sounders FC forward Fredy Montero’s agent reacting to the investigation of allegations made against Montero in the Seattle area.

Sounders FC reaffirmed Sunday that Montero could not have made the trip to Toronto regardless of any investigation, because of illness. Also, general manager Adrian Hanauer offered a response to the story in El Tiempo.

“While we know firsthand of the stress and frustration this situation has caused, we have counseled Fredy, his family and associates to have faith in our system of law and to allow due process,” Hanauer said.
