There is a potential situation developing with Steve Zakuani, as the Sounders FC midfielder wasn’t at practice Monday.
Coach Sigi Schmid said Zakuani had to undergo a blood test, and doctors wanted to get it done before the 25-year-old goes through another training session.
Schmid said he didn’t know what the issue is, but that it was “just something that came up” on regular checkup.
“This was the only time they could do it,” the coach added.
Zakuani had showed up ready to train Monday but was then told he needed to have his blood tested first. The midfielder’s status, at this point, is uncertain for Saturday’s game at Philadelphia.
Again, details are a bit limited as of today, but we’ll continue to get updates as we go.
