Sounders FC

Daily coverage of Seattle Sounders FC, MLS and world soccer.

Fredy Montero, Jhon Kennedy Hurtado are MLS All-Stars

That’s expected to be the case when the league announces the five coaching staff selections soon.
This means that the players get a monetary bonus, and my understanding is that the money, in the tens of thousands of dollars, will be a hit against Sounders FC’s salary cap.
But of course that doesn’t matter to the team as much as its players making the All-Star team.
So that makes four Sounders FC players in Utah next week — Montero, Hurtado, Keller and Ljungberg.
Details to come.
