Brad Evans: MLS players will ‘absolutely’ strike if demands aren’t met

Tukwila, Wash.–The Seattle Sounders FC regrouped for their first pre-season training session since the end of the 2014 MLS campaign. Midfielder Brad Evans, new general manager Garth Lagerwey and head coach Sigi Schmid met with the media after training ended.

In the video below, Evans discussed the current status of the CBA negotiations with Major League Soccer owners. In no uncertain terms, Evans said the players would “absolutely” strike if an agreement is not reached before the start of the 2015 season. 

Seattle hired Lagerwey to take over the general manager responsibilities from co-owner Adrian Hanauer. Lagerwey shared his thoughts on joining the Sounders and his views on improving the club. 

Schmidt, recovering from minor eye surgery, provided his perspective on working with Lagerwey.
