Brian Mullan won’t address media before Seattle trip, will take questions after game

As many fans have noticed, there is a subplot to this weekend’s Sounders FC home game against Colorado.

It will mark the first trip to Seattle for Rapids midfielder Brian Mullan after making a tackle that broke Steve Zakuani‘s leg about a year ago. If you remember, Mullan didn’t come here last July as he was dealing with a back injury — and surely some fresh emotions from the incident.

A few local reporters have inquired to see if Mullan would talk this week about coming to Seattle, but I’ve been told by a team spokesman that he won’t be speaking to the media before the game.

Mullan is, however, willing to take questions afterward.

In case you missed it, he did speak with Sports Illustrated’s Grant Wahl about the subject earlier this year and is looking forward to apologizing to Zakuani in person.

Colorado has issued the following statement regarding Mullan: “Brian is focused on helping the Rapids earn three points this weekend in Seattle and will be available to speak with reporters after the game. He remains deeply regretful of the incident that broke Steve Zakuani’s leg last season.”
