The Seattle Sounders enter the 2017 season as champions after a stunning late turnaround saw the team claim the MLS Cup title. Things didn't look good for the Sounders through most of the season, though.
That didn’t happen: The two teams settled for a disappointing 0-0 draw in front of 39,772 fans at Century Link Field.
After three seasons there, Friberg joined the Seattle Sounders in 2011.
However, the player would make his return to Sweden the following year and joined Malmo. Before making his return to the Seattle Sounders in 2015, Friberg had spells with Bologna and Esbjerg f B.
The deal is expected to be formally announced sometime in the next few days.
That Friberg is likely going back to Sweden shouldn’t come as a huge shock.
With Harry Shipp and Will Bruin joining the fold, Dempsey returning to full fitness, and much of the championship-winning core intact, the Sounders look like a sure-fire contender once more.
