And then there were six.
Fredy Montero’s loan to Colombia’s Millonarios for the upcoming season has taken away another player from the Sounders FC squad that opened on March 19, 2009, against the New York Red Bulls (pictured above). Montero, of course, was the star of that game with two goals in the 3-0 win.
It might not seem like that long ago, but four years will see quite a bit of change.
Here are the remaining “originals”:
Osvaldo Alonso (acquired from Charleston on Jan. 26, 2009)
Brad Evans (acquired via expansion draft on Nov. 26, 2008)
Jhon Kennedy Hurtado (signed on loan on Feb. 18, 2009)
Patrick Ianni (acquired via trade on Jan. 26, 2009)
Zach Scott (signed on March 16, 2009)
Steve Zakuani (drafted on Jan. 15, 2009)

Which of the six do you think will stick with the team longest?
