Ljungberg: Another Great MLS Signing

Get used to this sight Seattle.

Freddie Ljungberg, underwear model extraordinaire, is the Seattle Sounders designated player signing. Undoubtedly, he will prove to be a sage acquisition that will help the Sounders reach above the depths of last place in its inaugural season. He will provide star power, skill and will be an ever-present. Or maybe not.

Ljungberg just went under the knife for a torn labrum and will be out 10-12 weeks. How did Ljungberg get this injury? I don't know. But, I do know he hasn't played since Euro '08. His former club West Ham bought him out prior to the start of the EPL (Suck it Barclay's) season.

If you recall another underwear model designated player signing started off his MLS career injury plagued. How's that one turned out?

Maybe Ljungberg is angling to get a loan deal with Sampdoria.
