Nico Lodeiro celebrates with fans: “They deserve the win with us”

New, comments

Lodeiro had never before been able to celebrate that way.

Nicolas Lodeiro has only been playing for the Seattle Sounders for a few months. But he already appears to have made a connection to fans, even going as far as jumping the ad boards and embracing them after scoring his second goal in Sunday’s 3-0 win over FC Dallas.

Unlike his “shoe-phone” celebration, this was likely a first for Lodeiro, who spent most of his career playing in South America where fans are either much farther away from the field or behind high fences.

“The fans deserve this,” Lodeiro told Sounder at Heart through a translator. “We wanted to celebrate with them, it was a beautiful celebration and they deserve the win with us.”
