Erik Friberg trained with the Sounders today at Starfire and then met with the media for the first time since his re-signed with the club.
Here’s some of what he had to say.
On being back: It feels very good. I’m excited. It feels great. I know a lot of guys from 2011, so it feels easier.
On today’s training: It was good in the beginning. A little bit tired at the end. It’s warm.
On if he expected to return one day: Yes. I was close a couple of year ago. I talked to Chris Henderson every year. So wanted him to know that some day I would be back. Now I’m here. It’s perfect.
On the past couple of weeks: It was tough. I ended my season at the end of June. After that I couldn’t do anything else but just run and be at the gym. You can’t get many touches on the ball. I was a little bit frustrated, but now I’m here.
On how long before he’s 100 percent: It could take a couple of weeks, I don’t know, to get to 100. I’m pretty good right now. I need a couple of more touches on the ball, but fitness-wise I’m OK.
