Estrada took part in Sounders FC’s team combine in Las Vegas last month and impressed technical director Chris Henderson.
“I run well off the ball. I like to make runs off the ball and I think I’m a little bit different in the sense that I’m a little bit creative, I think.”
“Nunca me imagine que iba a llegar a una ciudad tan bonita como Seattle. Siempre cuando vamos a jugar con UCLA contra Washington era una de las mas bonitas que he ido.”
Translation: “I never imagined that I would get to a city so pretty as Seattle. When we’d go to play with UCLA against Washington it was one of the most beautiful places I’ve been to.”
Estrada said he’s aware of Seattle’s fan base and its top attackers, Freddie Ljungberg and Fredy Montero. He’s excited to come in and contribute.
