Will Ljungberg, Montero return for another Sounders season?

Posted: Updated:

TUKWILA, Wash. - Freddie Ljungberg and Fredy Montero made it clear Thursday that they loved virtually everything about their first year in American soccer with the Seattle Sounders. What was less clear was whether they would be back for another year.

Swedish star Ljungberg and Colombian scoring standout Montero are under contract for 2010 after leading the Sounders to the Major League Soccer playoffs in what was a glorious inaugural season.

But Ljungberg and Montero could have other possibilities in front of them as the Sounders head into the offseason.
