Perhaps Gardner was here, didn’t notice. Lusky I was told is coming in in Arizona. And no Ljungberg.
UPDATE: Josh Gardner, like Yakir Lusky, will be joining the team in Arizona. Thanks Frank!
The title means “A welcome to David Estrada,” the team’s first round draft pick this year. He said he’s excited to be in Seattle and remembers getting chills watching Sounders FC beat the NY Red Bulls 3-0 in the inaugural game. Here’s Estrada with the media.
