Amadou Sanyang Seals Sounders Move

By Omar Bah

The former Real de Banjul and Toronto FC defensive Midfielder Amadou Sanyang have successfully sealed a move to Seattle Sounders football Club after a successful three week trial with the
Major League Soccer club.
The Gambian international defensive midfielder Sanyang have been in Sounders for the past three weeks working hard to prove himself to the club leading the official announcement of his signature on Monday.
Amadou Sanyang was part of the team that guided Real de Banjul to a championship crown of the GFA league in 2007 during his teen ages.
“I am excited to be here, the environment is fantastic and the fans are just amazing,” he told the officials website of the Club.

Sanyang has an idea of what to expect from him after playing against Sounders FC in 2009 during his days in Toronto FC. Before signing he got an advice from his country mate Sanna Nyassi who played for the same team sounders FC.
Sanyang spent two seasons with Toronto FC but failed to make an impact, playing only 18 matches in the 2010 Season before suffering a long injury problem.  
Sigi Schmid, the head Coach Sounders described Sanyang as a good player defence well in midfield.
