Lamar Neagle given leave of absence by club

Sounders midfielder Lamar Neagle was a particularly notable absence from today’s team sheets, and the club confirmed that he’d been given leave to deal with a “serious personal matter” back in Seattle.

Neagle flew in with the team to Los Angeles before heading back north and is expected to rejoin the team next week.

“Our thoughts are with Lamar and we look forward to having him back with us in Seattle next week,” the club said in a statement.

Updates to follow as they develop.
