Seattle Sounders treading carefully with Ljungberg fitness

The Seattle Sounders are reporting that Freddie Ljungberg is in full-training with the club after participating in only certain parts of training in previous weeks.

Ljungberg played 35 minutes last week in a reserve game against Concordia University but head coach Sigi Schmid will not push him into the starting 11 before he is ready.

“He’s still not 90 minutes fit so we’ll see how this week goes,” Schmid said. “We’ll talk and figure out what’s best for him long term as well as short term.”
