Toronto FC

Toronto FC fires Preki and Johnston

Major League Soccer's Toronto FC fired coach Preki Radosavljevic and director of soccer Mo Johnston on Tueday.

Toronto is third in the East at 7-10-7 and appears likely to miss the playoffs following Saturday's 1-0 home loss to D.C. United, which has the poorest record in the league.

Preki, inducted last month into the U.S. Soccer Hall of Fame, was in his first season with Toronto after earning coach of the year honors at ChivasUSA. Johnson had been with the team since its inception, and Toronto has never made the playoffs.

Point Of Re-Entry
Toronto FC: We're not afraid to go big in Draft



TORONTO – Toronto FC interim GM Earl Cochrane isn’t sure how Wednesday’s Re-Entry Draft will play out. Seeing that it’s the first time MLS has held the draft, all he can do is speculate – but he's not afraid to jump in head first.

“We kind of thought it would be a case of experienced guys that are generally a little expensive and that’s what you find here,” he told MLSsoccer.com from his office Friday afternoon.

The full list of available players was released by the league on Friday and contained some notable names, such as former MLS MVP Guillermo Barros Schelotto, Jeff Cunningham, Juan Pablo Angel and Jimmy Conrad. Despite the star power available, Cochrane says he expects most of the action to involve lesser-known names.

“It will likely be those mid-level guys that are willing to come down [in salary] that will be most valuable to teams,” he said. The stars might generate interest, he added, but only in specific situations where the fit is perfect.

Although Cochrane was tight-lipped about TFC’s plans for the draft, he did say that the club is always looking to address the areas that need improvement. If the right player is available, Toronto won’t hesitate to grab him.

“We’re looking at several key components that anyone that knows our roster will understand,” Cochrane says. “There are maybe six key starting-11 type players we are after. The rest is about filling out our roster.”

Winter, Mariner named in TFC's management team


TORONTO — Toronto FC announced Thursday that Aron Winter (pron. A-ron Vinter) has been named the club’s new head coach and technical director. Paul Mariner joins the team as director of player development.

“We have been working over the past few months to build an integrated soccer system that will give us the best opportunity to succeed on the pitch,” said Tom Anselmi, executive vice president and chief operating officer, Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment. “We wanted to establish a management team that is committed to the way the club wants to play, has an international perspective, knows Major League Soccer and believes in the potential of Toronto FC.”

“Aron will oversee our entire soccer operation and set the soccer direction of Toronto FC. Paul will be responsible for our club’s scouting, player acquisition, player development and our Academy,” added Anselmi.

Winter, 43, brings a wealth of international experience to Toronto as both a player and coach. He made 84 international appearances for the Netherlands and played in three FIFA World Cups and four European Championships. He started and ended his playing career in Amsterdam with Ajax (pron. I-axe) and also played in Italy for Lazio and Inter Milan, making over 400 career club appearances.

De Guzman seeks fresh start after knee surgery

Toronto DP admits injuries have so far hampered his MLS career

TORONTO — As the mercury plummets and the snow piles up at BMO Field, it seems like spring may never come for Toronto FC and their Designated Player, Julian de Guzman.

But the disappointment of 2010 hangs worse for de Guzman. The Canadian international with blazing speed and dazzling ball skills revealed last week that he is in the midst of a three-month recovery process after undergoing knee surgery to repair a damaged meniscus.

“It was the first time I have ever had this injury,” de Guzman told MLSsoccer.com. “I was told it was wear and tear from an accumulation of games, traveling and training on turf.”

De Rosario unsettled, but wants to move forward

Toronto FC captain, club look to resolve lingering contract issue

TORONTO — Dwayne de Rosario spoke to media on Wednesday for the first time since he returned from a training stint with Scottish giants Celtic, and the Toronto FC midfielder made it clear he wants to move forward after sorting out the details of his contract.

“It’s not settled – no, I’m not,” he said. “But, that’s between me and the club.”

De Rosario trained with Celtic from Dec. 26 to Jan 18. However, Toronto said he started the trial without informing them or arranging the proper paperwork.

“I didn’t think that there was any confusion until I saw a press release,” he said. “But the past is the past. I’ve moved on.”

The club confirmed that they turned down a request from Celtic to extend De Rosario’s stay in Scotland until March. New TFC director of player personnel Paul Mariner said the club and De Rosario were meeting this week to talk about his contract.

Youngsters lead TFC past Red Star Belgrade

TFC Academy product Stinson scores lone goal in 1-0 victory


Young players are making their mark for Toronto FC as the club continues its preseason camp in Turkey.

On Sunday, TFC Academy product and 2010 Winthrop University MVP Matt Stinson scored TFC’s goal in a 1-0 win over Serbian side Red Star Belgrade.

According to first assistant Bob de Klerk, Stinson’s goal was just the reward for the work the young Reds have been doing in training.

“I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the skill of the young guys,” de Klerk said. “[I have] big compliments [for them]. They have really picked up the new system and have done well with it.”

De Rosario: I'm happier than I've ever been in Toronto

Coach Winter has specific plans for Canadian playmaker


TORONTO—If Toronto FC star Dwayne De Rosario is feeling any resentment from the controversy that surrounded his training session with Celtic last month, he wasn’t showing it at training Thursday.

“Other than the day I signed this is probably as happy as I’ve been here,” De Rosario said.

The attacker indicated that he was excited by the tactics that new head coach Aron Winter is trying to bring to the club.

“Anyone that likes to play with the ball on the ground, movement off the ball ... it’s perfect for me,” he said.

Although neither De Rosario or Winter would confirm what position De Rosario will play this year, it was stressed that he would likely be assigned a specific role.

De Rosario indicated a preference

Bouchiba bringing leadership quality to Toronto

Reds' new Dutch midfielder said team lacked passion v. Charleston



He’s only been signed by Toronto FC for a little more than a day, but midfielder Elbekay Bouchiba (pictured above, center) is not afraid to speak up when the Reds performance isn’t what it should be.

“There was no passion,” Bouchiba said of Toronto’s performance against the Charleston Battery at the Carolina Challenge Cup on Wednesday. The Reds lost 2-1 to the USL-Pro side.

Bouchiba was one of three Dutch players signed by TFC on Wednesday. Also joining the club were forward Javier Martina (above, left) and forward/midfielder Nick Soolsma. Where Martina provides Toronto with some much-needed speed on the wings and Soolsma is a first-rate prospect, Bouchiba’s greatest value could come from his leadership abilities.

“We were playing like we knew that that we didn’t need to win,” Bouchiba said. “I’m sure it will be different by the time we play Vancouver [on March 19], but you must always play with passion if you are going to win.”

Adrian Cann To Rejoin Toronto FC Preseason Friday

Canadian international back in the fold.


Adrian Cann will rejoin his Toronto FC teammates in preseason training at Charleston on Friday, the club's official site said in a terse note.

The Canadian international defender left the training camp a week ago, on March 2, over a contract dispute.

The release did not mention any possible punishment for Cann's unauthorized departure.

Since Cann has left, Toronto has lost two games in the Carolina Cup Challenge, falling 1-0 to the ten-man Chicago Fire and losing 2-1 to the lower-league Charleston Battery
