Some bad luck for Monsalve recently.  

 

In March, after America's #1 keeper got injured, Monsalve won the job.  This happened just as he got called up by Floro in March, which he turned down.  Then, unbelievably, Monsalve got injured as well.  Next thing you know there's a coaching change and he is released.

 

Hope he catches on somewhere else soon.

Monsalve, había recibido la convocatoria para la selección canadiense que dirige el español Benito Floro y con miras a los amistosos frente a Guatemala y Puerto Rico, los días 27 y 30 de marzo.

“Representar a su país es siempre un orgullo y no poder ir es algo difícil”, manifestó, y añadió sobre su prioridad: “El sueño mío siempre fue jugar en un equipo grande de Colombia, por ello, es un orgullo estar en América, representar el fútbol canadiense en Colombia”.

Monsalve received an invitation to the Canadian National Team managed by Spaniard Benito Floro for friendlies against Guatemala and Puerto Rico March 27 and 30th.  

"Representing your country is an honour and not being able to go is difficult.  I dream of playing for a big club in Colombia, and its an honour being with America, representing Canadian soccer in Colombia".

Reminder of how tenuous the opportunities are for goalkeepers everywhere. One moment you have an opportunity; next moment, it's gone.

Brutal, obviously. The onus to get a contract honoured shouldn't be on the players. This is what federations are for. FIFA and CONCACAF should step in right away on their behalf. I know this happens a lot but it's bush league and needs to be weeded out.

Milos Kocic I believe? I think he was loaned to a CSL club at the time

The CSL thing was before he played with TFC if I remember correctly. As far as I know he isn't playing anywhere now. I believe it's correct that he started a GK clinic or academy or something.

Just confirmed with this article. He had asked Preki to loan him to Serbian White Eagles in CSL

The new Vocal Minority pod has Monsalve on for an interview 

http://vocalminority.ca/episode-206-170927-aflipsortaswitched/

Ok so first 40 minutes is talking about his past.  Then it goes into the usual TFC recap and preview.  Last 35 minutes it's going into the CPL talk and his goalkeeper academy.
