Report: Soares Now Trialing with Viking FK


Another day, another trial for A.J. Soares.

A Norwegian report confirmed on Friday that the former Revolution center back will be trialing with Tippeligaen side Viking on Saturday.

Soares, who trained with another Norwegian first division outfit – Stabaek – earlier this week, will join the club in Spain, where it is preparing for a preseason scrimmage on Sunday.

“He will train with the team tomorrow,” Viking press officer Ole J. Askeland told on Friday. “He might play [in the friendly] on Sunday.”

Askeland also told that the club is targeting the same spot Soares filled during the past four years in New England.

“The team is looking for a right center back,” said Askeland.

Soares scored in a preseason scrimmage with Stabaek on Wednesday, but subsequent reports advised that the former first round pick was looking for an opportunity at a “bigger” club.
