Young-Pyo Lee will be returning to the Vancouver Whitecaps after all.
The Whitecaps confirmed on Thursday that Lee will be back with the club for the 2013 season. The 35-year-old defender was contemplating retirement but has chosen to play at least one more season in Vancouver, where he shone this year.
“We’re thrilled that Lee has decided to return for a second season in Vancouver,” Whitecaps FC head coach Martin Rennie said in a statement released by the club. “He was a cornerstone of our backline last year and a leader on the squad. Not only does he bring world-class talent, but also a wealth of experience that will continue to benefit his teammates.”
Lee signed with the Whitecaps last December. He started in the 33 league games he played in for the club, scoring one goal and assisting on four others.
What do you think of Lee returning to the Whitecaps? Think he will have another solid year in 2013?
