Seattle’s star midfielder Freddie Ljungberg recently had a column posted on ESPN.com, where he talks about Arsenal and the Sounders FC preseason.
Here’s the interesting bit, but be sure to check the whole thing out:
With the Sounders, we are in Spain right now in what has become the longest preseason I’ve ever played in. At Arsenal we typically trained for three to four weeks and then we played. We are training for about seven to eight weeks with the Sounders, so it’s hard to determine how hard to train and how hard to push myself. I talk a lot to the fitness coaches about how to plan that.
I think he echoes the sentiments of a lot of people…
Also, word is Kansas City won the weighted lottery for the rights to Luis Gil, a youth national team player, but the team will likely trade him.
