Dipping into the prospects of a third division team in Czechia the Seattle Sounders found two more teens to join their USL Championship team in 2019. S2 will have the services of defender Modou Ndow and Congolese midfielder Ben Numbi on loan from MFK Vyskov.
Ndow is a hybrid left back, centerback who is 6’4 and 175. He turns 19 on February 10. He is from Gambia, and the third player from the West African nation to sign with the organization (Nyassi, Sanyang)
Numbi is a 5’10 midfielder who turns 19 on March 22. He is from Democratic Republic of Congo, and the third member of the organization from the central African nation (Zakuani, Nkufo).
Both players were discovered via Seattle’s scouting efforts. Sounders FC Director of Player Development Marc Nicholls said via press release, “they are both products of our strong African scouting pipeline, and we’re excited about what they can bring to our club.”
Ten of the 15 players on the current 2019 roster are products of the Sounders Academy. Twelve players will start the season as teenagers.
