Report from Holland: ex-Sounder Blaise Nkufo to retire

nkufo mug.jpgThe league website does a great job at compiling the day’s news stories in a feature called “Kick Off”. In today’s edition I saw an interesting link toward the bottom of the page, where international articles are often featured:

Reports from the Netherlands claim that former Sounders DP Blaise Nkufo has decided to retire. (DUTCH)

Here’s a Google translation to English, so take it for what it is.

If true, the news shouldn’t be a huge surprise to Sounders FC fans as Blaise Nkufo was widely believed to be in his last year as a professional. Now is also not the ideal time to try to find a new club.

Also, in unrelated news, it looks like Qwest Field could be due for a name change soon. CenturyLink Field?
