After starting the season 0-3 and only scoring two goals, the Seattle Sounders have added a veteran presence at striker position.
The club announced on Thursday the signing of former U.S. Men’s National Team forward Herculez Gomez, who most recently played with Toronto FC in 2015.
“Herculez is a veteran player who has played in some big games,” said Sounders FC Head Coach Sigi Schmid. “I look forward to his team play, hard-working attitude and his goal scoring as an addition to our team.”
Prior to joining TFC last season, the 33-year-old Gomez spent six years in Mexico, where he played for many clubs. Gomez featured for Puebla, Pachuca and Santos Laguna, among others during his stint in Liga MX.
The forward began his MLS career in 2002, playing for the LA Galaxy. He was sent out on loan to the Sounders the next season, when the club was still in the USL First Division.
