On Thursday, the Seattle Sounders announced that they have waived Victor Mansaray. The 20-year-old was the Sounders’ fourth-ever Homegrown Player, and was also the youngest player to ever appear in an MLS match for the Sounders. He has already signed with a team in Sweden’s third division, which may explain the timing of this news.
Mansaray made only made three appearances for the First Team in his time with the club. He played the majority of his time with S2, where he scored six goals and assisted on three others in 38 appearances.
He spent most of the 2017 season on loan with FC Cincinnati of the USL before being called back at the end of June. Since returning to Seattle, he made two substitute appearances for S2 and played just 61 minutes.
"We would like to thank Vic for his contributions to Sounders FC over the past three years and wish him success as he approaches the next step in his career path," said Sounders FC General Manager & President of Soccer Garth Lagerwey.
Mansaray featured with Sounders Academy during 2013 and 2014 and scored a team high 18 goals for the U16 squad.
