TUKWILA — In their transition back to MLS from a two-month offseason, Sounders co-captains Nico Lodeiro and Stefan Frei went from sandy beaches to a snowy soccer field.
While Seattle braced for cold weather this week, Lodeiro (Uruguay) and Frei (Mexico) posted photos via social media of their warm getaways. The players joined the rest of the team for the first on-field training session of 2020 at Starfire Sports on Tuesday. As the session progressed, so did the snowfall, blanketing the stadium’s artificial turf when the practice concluded at noon.

“I like this weather,” Lodeiro said.
