It’s a question you wouldn’t have asked in February when Toronto FC kicked off the 2023 season with a rebuilt backline and belief that a full season of the Insigne and Bernardeschi show would vault TFC to the top of the table. But now, it’s the No. 1 question in our comments section.
Many Reds supporters were delighted at the sight of one of the most beloved players in club history back at the team’s training ground at Downsview Park this summer. Interim head coach Terry Dunfield revealed that Sebastian Giovinco wanted to see what he had left in the tank, as did the club.
As of last week, the Italian joined in on full team training sessions, having previously just used the facilities to train on his own.
Toronto FC have just seven games remaining this season, and more importantly, three home fixtures at BMO Field, beginning with a visit from Richie Laryea’s Vancouver Whitecaps on September 16 in the club’s return from the international break.
There will be a league-wide roster freeze for all MLS teams the day before that match, on September 15, according to the 2023 MLS Roster Rules and Regulations.
There’s no denying that Giovinco is a club legend, whose time in Toronto ended far sooner than many TFC fans wanted. He scored 68 goals in 114 appearances.
Would you want to see Seba back on the pitch at BMO one last time?
