"We wanted to bring in a player who is a central midfielder and has playmaking capabilities," Seattle coach Sigi Schmid said told seattlepi.com. "Christian is a player who fits this mold and brings a lot of experience from the top league in Germany. His leadership and versatility make him a good fit for our club."
