Hahnemann: Gone Fishing

Following Reading's relegation from the English Premier League, goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann took time off to return home to Seattle, where he fished every day. "It was exactly what I needed and exactly where I needed to be after a long season," he said in an interview with Goal.com's Matthew Braine. "When you work hard all year, you definitely enjoy the time off but once you get back into training you work harder because you've had that rest and are ready to prepare."

Hahnemann admitted that the Royals face a more difficult task than in 2005-06 when they won promotion for the first time. "There is more pressure on us and we expect that," he said, "but it's going to be a tough year ahead of us.  The mindset will be different because when you're in the Premiership, you're going to play Manchester United. But here it's like, 'We're going to Nottingham Forest' which is still a good club, but it isn't as easy to get pumped up.

Hahnemann, who began his pro career with the A-League Sounders, might finish his career with the MLS Sounders, who begin play in 2009. "That's always been the goal -- to come back and play in the MLS someday," he said. "Who knows what will happen?  I didn't think that I'd be in England for 10 years."
