In the wake of Wednesday’s friendly with Chelsea, in which he scored twice for the Sounders in their 4-2 loss, the 24-year old Colombian feels he is now prepared to take the next step.
“Yes, I would love to play there,” Montero said regarding a move to any of Europe’s top leagues.
“I’m waiting for the right opportunity to come. Yeah, I’m ready to play in one of those leagues, I think so.
“MLS is a league that has some things similar to the Premier League … every single day in training, you see the speed of the game. I think you see the same in the Premier League.”
And Sounders head coach Sigi Schmid agreed with Montero’s sentiments indicating that the former Deportivo Cali man could soon be on his way.
“He’s ready to play at another level,” Schmid said. “It’s gotta be the right situation, it’s gotta be the right opportunity for him, and then you’ve gotta take advantage of it.”
