(Charleston, SC) -- Seattle Sounders star forward Clint Dempsey says he
plans on being more than just a spectator this season. Dempsey had to watch his teammates from the sidelines for much of last year, as they won their first-ever MLS Cup. He had been diagnosed in September with an irregular heartbeat, but says he's now 85-to-90-percent back to full fitness as he prepares for training camp in Charleston, South Carolina. Sounders coach Brian Schmetzer says he plans for Dempsey to take it slow during camp with the goal of playing in the season opener in Houston next month.
