Djimi Traore may remain with Sounders organization

Djimi Traore has played his final match with the Seattle Sounders, but that doesn't mean he's leaving the organization. The Sounders didn't quite confirm the 34-year-old center back's retirement on Thursday, but they did suggest Traore would have a place within the organization if he wanted one.

Loosely translated that tweet says Traore's position would likely be with the Sounder's USL Pro affiliate, a seemingly good place for a player who seemed to relate well to his younger teammates. Traore was among DeAndre Yedlin's best friends on the team and was always happy to give advice to teammates after a career spent mostly in Europe and included a Champions League medal when he was with Liverpool.
