Seattle Sounders' Ljungberg concerned at poor crowd behaviour

Seattle Sounders midfielder Freddie Ljungberg has once again voiced his concern over poor crowd behaviour directed at his team.

In their 1-0 loss to Colorado Rapids at Dick's Sporting Goods Park, Sounders keeper Kasey Keller had beer thrown on him sparking fresh concerns in regards to player safety following the incident at Toronto where Ljungberg had a bottle thrown at him.

The Swede said something has to be done very quickly to stamp out further problems.

"It's a problem that they need to address. And they need to address it sooner rather than later," Ljungberg said.

Keller also spoke of his anger at the situation and called on MLS Commissioner Don Garber to act.

"I'm a little disappointed though, I've played all over the world and this is the first time I've had a beer thrown on me in a game. So I'm just wondering... I know what would happen in Europe if that happened. I know that fan would be banned for life and there would be sanctions. I'm just wondering what (MLS commissioner) Don Garber is going to do about it, because that s*** shouldn't be allowed in this league," Keller said.
