Nkufo to Join Sounders FC on July 13

RENTON, WASH. – The Seattle Sounders FC announced today that forward Blaise Nkufo will join the team on July 13.

“In our discussions with Blaise we encouraged him to take a full two weeks off once he returned from the World Cup,” said General Manager Adrian Hanauer. “His first training date is scheduled for July 13 and he is eligible to be added to the roster on July 15.”

Nkufo represented Switzerland during the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. He played the past seven seasons for FC Twente in Enschede, Holland. Twente won the Dutch Eredivisie in May and Nkufo scored a club record 114 goals in league play.

The supporters of Twente will pay tribute to Nkufo on Sunday, July 11, unveiling a statue outside De Grolsch Veste, the team’s home stadium.
