Malmo FF interest in now former Seattle Sounders player Erik Friberg started before recent circumstances opened his availability. After paying an undisclosed transfer fee, according to GM Adrian Hanauer, the Swedish club and Friberg agreed to a three-year deal with undisclosed payment terms. It is assumed that a substantial number of tacos are involved.
In his conversations with the team website (google translate) it is clear that Friberg enjoyed his time in Seattle;
I have really enjoyed it here in the U.S. but we are expecting a baby, Malin and me, and when we felt like we were home. We will start looking residents in early January and hope that it [is resolved]in March when we will give birth.
He and the site also note that Sounders supporters and fans are are league leaders, while the play on the field is better than typically credited. Friberg's first training date remains virtually unchanged as the Swedish league plays a similar schedule to MLS.
