  • Three kids leave TFCA - what does it mean?


    In a terse press release TFC announced that it had parted ways with three academy players. Keven Aleman, Dino Gardiner, and Jonathan Lao all refused to sign a letter of intent with the club and were released.

    Aleman could be the big loss. He was a stand out for Canada at the CONCACAF u-17 qualifiers and has a lot of talent on the ball.

    What does it mean though? It's hard to say. It could be as simple as three players wanting to try their luck in Europe and TFC not wanting to be anyone's second choice. It's unlikely that it has to do with a lack of talent for any of the players as they were all well regarded.

    One thing seems certain. TFC doesn't take well to wafflers at the academy level. You either commit to the club, or you move on -- no matter the talent level.

    It's hard to argue with that logic. You want good players, clearly, but you want players that want to be there (eg. De Rosario, Dwayne).
