Toronto FC Strengthen Backline with Eckersley, Caicedo
No way! Does TFC actually have an actual solid and firm backline for the first time in…ever?
During TFC’s media day on Thursday, they announced the resigning of (now) ex-Burnley defender Richard Eckersley. The finalization of this deal has been eagerly awaited by fans, who had been waiting on tenterhooks for the paperwork to be completed. When news broke that the English Championship side released him, most of the fears that the deal would never be done just vanished.
And to make things even better, they announced on the same day that Joao Plata’s teammate from LDU Quito, centreback(!!!) Geovanny Caicedo has been added to the lineup. For a team that’s been looking for defensive solutions and a supporter base that’s been waiting for one, the 30-year old should hopefully provide some breathing room.
