Back in January, Seattle Sounders winger Steve Zakuani told the world that he was signing off of Twitter for a while.
He didn't really give a reason.
Will not be on twitter till after the season but keep up with me & our 2013 journey on instagram (stevezakuani11). Lots of pics #GOSOUNDERS— Steve Zakuani (@stevezakuani11) January 18, 2013
But in the lead-up to the Sounders visit to the Colorado Rapids on Saturday (6 pm ET, watch on MLS Live) -- his first return to Dick's Sporting Goods Park since suffering a career-threatening broken leg in 2011 -- he broke his silence. The emotion of the moment and all that came with his long recovery obviously got the best of tweeting self.
Almost exactly 2 years ago my career nearly ended here in Colorado. Back here for first time for a match tomorrow. Full circle.— Steve Zakuani (@stevezakuani11) April 20, 2013
Just had to tweet that because it reminds me of the support you all gave me. Didn't mean to break my twitter hiatus lol. Thanks!!!— Steve Zakuani (@stevezakuani11) April 20, 2013
