Sounders FC

Daily coverage of Seattle Sounders FC, MLS and world soccer.

July 12, 2010 at 1:28 PM

A stop and chat with Sounders FC mid Freddie Ljungberg

(On the ankle injury) “It’s a sore ankle; I don’t know how that comes as a surprise. But yeah, it’s getting a bit better. It’s pretty good.”

(Did you know Friday you’d be out?) “No, I’ve been feeling it and it’s nothing we talk about before games. It’s something we took a decision on Saturday and it wasn’t that great. That’s how it is unfortunately. That’s the way it is.”

(On available for Thursday) “We’ll see how it feels a little bit, how it reacts. I trained today and we’ll see how it reacts, how it feels. We need points and hopefully we get some in the next game.”

(On how the team looked in your absence) “It’s always hard to talk about teams when you’re not playing. It’s not fair to players that are playing that other players should have opinions about it. In general, we need points. We played the team last in the standings on our side, we needed to win and get three points, but we’ll try to do it again Thursday. I think that’s the bottom line, to be honest, we need three points.”

(On Blaise Nkufo arrival) “Yeah, I think he’ll be great when he comes in. I think everybody’s waiting for him to come. It’s always a little bit as well, players have known for a long time that he’s coming, but he’s not here. Sometimes it hangs anxiety on some players that maybe he’s like replacing their position and people don’t always feel as free as they would otherwise. There’s always a mental thing about signing players early and people know they’re coming in but don’t have them. But I hope now when he’s here it’s going to be great for everyone and he’s going to do great I think.”

(On rumors) “We’ll see what happens. It’s the transfer window and my contract is up here in November. We’ll see what happens. We’ll see.”

(On thinking about staying in Seattle) “Yeah, I’ve said before that I love Seattle. The fans have been — I don’t even know how to describe it — they’ve taken me with open arms and been amazing, even when I walk down the street or in the stadiums, they cheer. I feel so welcome. There’s absolutely nothing I can complain about.”
