Montero returns home

Fredy Montero posted a goodbye message to Seattle Sounders FC fans on his Twitter account Wednesday. The 25-year-old Colombian forward is expected to join Colombia’s Millonarios on loan, although the move hasn’t been made official yet. Montero, the franchise’s all-time leading scorer, called his four seasons with the Sounders “unforgettable” and thanked the team’s staff, coaches, players, and specifically the fans. The Sounders have declined to comment since reports of Montero’s exit surfaced last week. Millonarios starts its preseason Thursday heading into defense of its Colombian league title and participation in the Copa Libertadores, a world-renowned tournament for the best teams in South America. – Seattle Times
