No hard feelings with Ljungberg – Seattle Sounders’ Schmid

Seattle Sounders coach Sigi Schmid admitted there were no hard feelings when Freddie Ljungberg and his new club, Chicago Fire, came to town on the weekend.

The former Arsenal star left the Sounders recently to join the Fire and after his former club’s 2-1 win over his new club, his old coach said everything between the two was fine.

"We shook hands at the end of the game. We didn't talk before the game; he was all business getting ready for the game,” Schmid said. “But we shook hands after the game, not a problem.

“He's a great player, I've always said that. I thought we kept him in check pretty well throughout the game. I know our fans were booing every time he touched the ball and I didn't think there were a lot of boos so that means he wasn't touching the ball all that much, which is good.”
