Djimi Traore may remain with Sounders organization

New, 6 comments

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.
