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.
