Watch Clint Dempsey Officially Unveiled As a Seattle Sounders Player [VIDEO]

clint dempsey2 Watch Clint Dempsey Officially Unveiled As a Seattle Sounders Player [VIDEO]

Seattle Sounders will unveil Clint Dempsey as their newest player tonight at 10:15pm ET. Watch the special presentation live via the video below.

The excitement is building to welcome former Fulham and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Clint Dempsey to Major League Soccer. This marks a mammoth move for the best supported team in the top flight American league, but it doesn’t come cheaply. Dempsey is reported to be wages of £100,000 a week at Seattle after Major League Soccer paid a transfer fee of £6million for the talented American.

While tonight marks the end of the chapter of Dempsey’s life that saw him play at Fulham and Spurs, today marks a new chapter in his second stint in Major League Soccer.

However, MLS still has major challenges facing them if they want to continue to improve as a league. A perfect example is tonight’s game between Seattle and FC Dallas, which isn’t being televised nationwide in this country.
