Sounders FC Sigi Schmid quotes from Thursday’s training

SIGI SCHMID

(On Seamon…) “Obviously we liked him in the draft and the combine, that’s why we drafted him. I think he’s got some qualities. He can play a number of different positions, he played more as an attacking midfielder on his college team but also played wide. He’s got good size to him, he’s good in the air. Obviously he’s confident — there’s not a lot of guys that step on the field and say against Boca, ‘Hey, I’m going to hit it.’ And he listens, when you say things to him, you see him apply it in training. I think he’s going to have a good future in the league. It’s always tough joining midseason like he’s joining, but I think he’s got a good future.”

(Is he learning this season or contributing?) “If he’s ready to contribute, he contributes. We’re never going to stop a player in that regard. But right now it’s a little bit about learning. He did well in the reserve game that we played the other day. He did well against Boca. He’s going to get opportunities to play when we roll into the Open Cup and when we roll into CONCACAF (Champions League), so he’s going to get chances. It’ll be more than just observing and so forth, he’s going to be able to get on the field and do some things.”

(On Fucito’s knee injury…) “They did do surgery on him, surgery was successful. So he’s supposed to leave it pretty immobile for a little bit while it starts to heal. The surgeon was happy with how it went and think it’ll heal completely, it’s just going to take time.”

(On Fucito’s story as an example for Seamon…) “He’s an example that it’s tough when you jump in midseason. But the difference for Michael last year too is he had a hamstring injury already in preseason. He re-aggravated it training with us so that slowed him down. Seamon’s injury-free at this stage so it should be a little easier for him. But we hope to get Fucito back out here as quick as we can and get him back in the fold.”

(Still going with Parke or still deciding?) “We’re still deciding.”

(On Parke’s debut) “He did alright for his first game. He hadn’t played 90 in a long time and playing in Colorado at altitude is pretty tough.”
