Hanauer statement on the Marcus Hahnemann rumors

A couple reports have swirled around the internet today regarding Marcus Hahnemann and a possible return to the Sounders. Here’s an unsubstantiated Daily Mail story referencing a supposed contract offer and an ESPN’s Douglas McIntyre tweeted the following quote from Hahnemann earlier today (full report available to ESPN Insider subscribers).

“I have to talk to Sigi Schmid and the guys in Seattle to see if they actually want me first.”

Sounders FC general manager Adrian Hanauer responded today in a statement issued through the team:

* * *

“Marcus Hahnemann is a great goalkeeper, he is from the Seattle area and we’ve discussed the possibilities. That said, there is a very specific process through which U.S. National Team players may enter Major League Soccer, so we cannot make any comments on specific contract negotiations or the likelihood of Marcus ending up in Seattle.”
