(Toronto) The impasse between Josie Altidore and Toronto now appears to be a thing of the past.
After a seven-week absence, the Toronto club confirmed that the star striker resumed training with his teammates on Monday. This was TFC’s first training session at its Canadian facility after returning from his stay in the United States last week.
TFC crossed the border after their 3-2 win last Wednesday over the New England Revolution, thanks to the easing of travel restrictions for players who received two doses of the COVID.19 vaccine.
An update is also expected from the TFC regarding their return to the BMO field in Toronto soon. The team has not played in their garden since 1he is September 2020 – Final campaign completed in East Hartford, Connecticut, before the current campaign begins in Orlando, Florida.
TFC’s next home game is scheduled for July 17th against Orlando City.
Altidore has been at odds with TFC over a feud between former coach Chris Armas and himself, after he was replaced at 70e Minute of the match, which ended 1-0 in favor of Orlando City. The 31-year-old veteran has been training solo ever since.
Armas has since been sacked as his club started the season with a poor 1-8-2 record. The Torontonians are now led by assistant coach Javier Perez, who was on the sidelines to triumph over the Revolution.
