Ljungberg Debut Delayed for Hip Surgery


Seattle Sounders signing Freddie Ljungberg will miss the season opener, after surgery to repair a “hip condition.”  He will be out 10 to 12 weeks.

“Freddie Ljungberg is a player that we value for the long term,” Sounders GM Adrian Hanauer said.  “As Freddie increased his training regimen for the upcoming season, we wanted to make sure that he was firing on all cylinders for the next two years and beyond.”

Ljungberg’s hip problems began with Arsenal in 2005, when he contracted blood poisoning from his tattoos.  He has endured a myriad of leg injuries, serious and niggling, since, which hampered his effectiveness at elite level.

Hip surgery does not augur well for someone whose primary occupation is running.
