Toronto FC is one of the teams still looking for a coach for the 2021 season of Major League Soccer, as the Canadian franchise was left without a coach after the departure of Greg Vanney and according to multiple reports, Chris Armas to become the new coach of the Canadian franchise, which finished second in the Eastern Conference last season.
The journalist from TSN Soccer, Kristian Jack, He already takes for granted the arrival of Armas to Toronto FC, after last season he was fired from the New York Red Bulls and it seems that eThe Canadian team will overtake DC United, which also claimed the American coach.
Armas left the New York team after winning the MLS Supporters’ Shield in 2018 and after his dismissal, he sounded like one of the main candidates to take the position left by Ben Olsen at DC United, after a decade at the helm of the US capital as a whole.
In case the movement of the former US national is confirmed, he would take the reins of Vanney, who surprisingly left Toronto, after having led them to the MLS Cup in 2017, add 3 Canadian Championships and reach the final of the 2018 Concacaf Champions League, in which they fell in front of Chivas.
Chris Armas would return to action in MLS, in which he has 29 wins, 11 draws and 21 losses as coach of NYRB, something that caught the attention of DC United, but everything indicates that he will become Toronto FC’s coach for the 2021 MLS season.
Equipment without technician
The new campaign is getting closer and closer and Toronto would leave the list of teams that are still without a coach, as they would join the LA Galaxy or Atlanta United that recently introduced Greg Vanney and Gabriel Heinze, respectively, while clubs like DC United and Inter Miami still cannot find the strategist to guide them through 2021.
