Jozy Altidore would like to leave Toronto FC

Forward Jozy Altidore could change address soon as he is no longer interested in playing with Toronto FC.

ESPN reporter Jeff Carlisle reported on Saturday.

His difficult relationship with general manager Ali Curtis and dissatisfaction with his current contract would explain the desire of the 31-year-old American to leave the Toronto squad.

US national team manager Gregg Berhalter said on Saturday that a number of teams would be interested in Altidore’s services. The latter will not participate in the friendly between the United States and Trinidad and Tobago on Sunday due to an injury and a possibility of transfer.

Altidore signed a three-year contract extension with Toronto FC in 2019, worth approximately $ 6 million annually. In 2020, he was the third highest paid player in Major League Soccer.

In his five seasons with the team, he scored 58 goals in 123 regular season games. He also helped Toronto FC win the MLS Cup in 2017.

Last year, however, Altidore only played 13 games, including 10 times as a starter. Wounded several times, he was somewhat supplanted by young Ayo Akinola in charge of the Toronto attack.
