Media days can be tough, both for subjects and reporters. Usually, there’s a bunch of players dragged out in front of reporters and asked an assortment of questions. Rarely does anything particularly newsworthy surface.

Nicolas Lodeiro, though, managed to alter that narrative.

While we only have the highlights available via Twitter, he managed to drop a few lines that shows he at least knows what Seattle Sounders fans want to hear.

About coming to Seattle:

About his future with the Sounders:

There was a playful dig at one of his teammates:

What really got tongues wagging, though was this line about recruiting good friend Luis Suarez to MLS:

We’re told by people who were there that this was very much a joke, and was not meant to suggest Suarez is considering the possibility of leaving Barcelona — where he is in the midst of another outstanding season — for the Sounders anytime in the near future. And it’s another discussion all together whether or not Suarez’s baggage makes him an unattractive target.

Still, it’s reassuring to know that Lodeiro not only likes it here and sees a future for himself here, but that he’s also apparently happy to tell his friends about how great it is.
