Giovinco sent off using VAR

Sebastian Giovinco was controversially sent off for Toronto FC using VAR during a tense 3-2 MLS defeat to New England Revolution.

The incident occurred after Giovinco had converted an 89th-minute penalty and was running back to the centre-circle in order to restart play as soon as possible.

Wilfried Zahibo tried to push the ball out of his hands to delay him, so the Atomic Ant reacted by reaching up and putting a hand on his face.

Referee Mark Geiger viewed it on VAR and gave the Italy international a straight red card.

The hostile crowd in Monterrey, Mexico simply couldn’t believe their eyes. The stories had been true after all.

The rest of the continent watched in amazement as the Atomic Ant put a perfectly placed free-kick in the top corner – hitting the inside of the post – on it’s way to the back of the net. It was the goal that ultimately sent Toronto FC through to the CONCACAF Champions League semi-finals and the moment when Sebastian Giovinco cemented his spot as the best in the region.

Cagliari could send full-back Gregory van der Wiel to Toronto FC for a new phase of his career in MLS.

He only joined Cagliari in late August for €1m from Fenerbahce, having previously played for Ajax and Paris Saint-Germain.

Van der Wiel struggled to adapt to Serie A and was given only five appearances.

It’s reported Cagliari are prepared to sell, but only if they have a replacement in hand.
