Bermuda blaster Khano Smith, a mixture of athleticism, cockiness, brilliance and occasional mind-bogglingly bad tackles, talks with the Bermuda Sun about coming to Seattle:
"I was out of contract so I wasn't protected this time, as I have been in other seasons, so I knew it was a possibility that I would be picked up. "I talked to the Seattle manager and technical director and they were keen to have me over there. They've offered me a good deal and I'm looking forward to the challenge."
In the Royal Gazette, Smith says: "This is a completely new experience for me and it feels strange, but the Sounders wanted me and that's a really nice feeling.
"I've spoken with their technical director and he said he was excited to have me onboard and was looking forward to me becoming a Sounders player."
A Revs blogger says you get what you get with Smith: "Despite the valleys and peaks, Khano Smith must be appreciated for the player he was: a playfully unpredictable performer who occasionally teased you with glimpses of his full potential."
