Fredy Montero’s time with the Seattle Sounders is over. At least for now.
Montero revealed he would be leaving Seattle on Twitter on Wednesday, all but confirming SBI’s report that the Designated Player would be heading to Colombian club Millonarios on a six-month loan. Montero did not indicate where he would be heading in his tweet but he made it seem as if there would be no return in the near future, thanking Sounders fans for their “unconditional support” and telling them that he would be back one day.
If this is indeed the end of Montero’s time with Seattle, he leaves the club he joined in 2009 having scored 47 goals and assisting on 34 others in 119 regular season appearances. Montero never scored a goal in the playoffs during his four-year stay with the Sounders.
What do you think of Montero leaving Seattle? Think it is a mistake for the Sounders to let him go? How will the club fare without him in 2013?
