Translation: The new defender has arrived: Leonardo Gonzalez.
Leonardo got in some work with Sounders FC in practice today and afterward spoke to media.
Here’s the new guy already making new fans.
Gonzalez visited Seattle and met with the team a couple of months ago, and thought the city was beautiful. He said he liked that Sounders FC is a new team that was already doing well and that playing here is an opportunity to grow as a player.
Gonzalez called himself a left back — that means competition with Tyson Wahl and Zach Scott, as coach Sigi Schmid put it — with good technical skills who likes to get forward.
