The 41-year old joined in training with his Timbers players on Monday and received some positive reviews from his Timbers players.
"If you watch (our) training, he still as competitive as probably anybody on the field," Chabala said. "He motivates guys. He still pushes it and keeps up with the play. It's fun to actually get to go up against him. Put your arm in him."
And goalkeeper Perkins added: "Sometimes he gets pretty winded pretty quickly. If he's on your team defensively, you're stuck. But he can still play."
