In advance of the Sounders match at Chivas USA on Saturday, I arranged a phone interview with former Sounder/current Chivas midfielder Mauro Rosales. I began the conversation by telling him how warmly the Sounders and supporters have spoken of him this week. His response: “I’d like it to be there; but it’s another time now.” Here’s more from our conversation: On how he reacted to the news of the trade: It wasn’t easy, but as a player you have to accept any kind of decision.
