Toronto thank Juve for Giovinco

Toronto FC are “grateful to Juventus” for allowing Sebastian Giovinco to terminate his contract six months early.

The striker had already signed on to join the Canadian MLS club from July, but today ended his Juventus contract early by mutual consent.

“Having Sebastian join us in time for training camp is incredibly important for our team and our plans this ‎year,” said Toronto FC general manager Tim Bezbatchenko.

“Sebastian is a world-class player who makes all of his teammates better and his arrival is a monumental moment for Major League Soccer and Toronto.

“Because he was so driven to join his new team now, Seba and his agent took it upon themselves and went to great lengths to negotiate his release from Juventus. That speaks volumes about his commitment to this team, the leadership he brings, and the fact that he is fully behind our vision for the long term.

“We are grateful to Juventus and his agent Andrea D'Amico for working to allow Seba to pursue his Toronto FC and MLS dream now.”
