POLL: Are you more excited to see Le Toux or Adu?

The Philadelphia Union has arrived in Seattle for Saturday’s 7 p.m. game at CenturyLink Field and you might recognize a couple of the visitors.

Forward Sebastien Le Toux, who Sounders FC lost in the expansion draft after the 2009 season, is the reigning MLS Player of the Month. Midfielder Freddy Adu, a household name in American soccer for almost 10 years, will be making his first trip to Seattle for an MLS game.

Coach Sigi Schmid was asked about the two today after practice:

“Seba has obviously been very hot the last month. He deservedly got Player of the Month — he’s been scoring goals. We know what he brings to the table: he’s hard-working, he’s honest. I think early in the season they played him a lot at wide midfield, where he’s not as happy as playing up front. Now he’s playing up front, so he’s been very dangerous for them.”

“Freddy Adu is a player who I think is still a little bit of a wild-card in our league. He’s capable of doing some very good things with the ball. He’s technically very clean. I coached him with the under-20s. He’s a good player who’s got a good first two steps, but I think he’s still finding his way into the rhythm of their team a little bit.”

Now it’s your turn:
