Mauro Rosales enjoyed an outstanding first season in Major League Soccer, leading Seattle's high-powered offense and earning MLS Newcomer of he Year honors in the process.
The Sounders rewarded Rosales outstanding debut, and secured his services in the process, signing the 30-year-old playmaker to a multi-year contract. Seattle general manager Adrian Hanauer revealed that the new deal is a two-year deal with a third option year.
Rosales recorded a Sounders record 13 assists along with five goals in 2011, helping Seattle win a third-straight U.S. Open Cup and qualify for the quarterfinals for the CONCACAF Champions League.
What do you think of this development? Excited to see Rosales return in 2012? See him challenging for MLS MVP honors next season?
