Marcus Hahnemann says the consistently massive crowds that the Seattle Sounders attract should be enough motivation for the playing group to perform.

The Sounders, who have lost their past four matches, are expecting a crowd of around 66,000 for Sunday's meeting with the LA Galaxy and former Fulham and Reading goalkeeper Hahnemann feels that in itself is enough incentive to perform.

"The (66,000) people that are going to be coming to the game, that's my motivation and that for most of the guys on the team," said Hahnemann. "There is no more motivation you need than that."

Prior to the game, the Sounders sit fourth on the Western Conference table but a win over the Galaxy would see them lifted to third ahead of the playoffs.
