Victor Vázquez is back with Toronto FC. I don’t know what he has left in the tank, but I would run through a wall for him.
The city of Toronto is used to being the city of losers. However, Toronto FC has given us something to cheer for the last ten years.
After a bitterly disappointing season that left Toronto FC fans with hope after the arrival of Lorenzo Insigne, and Federico Bernardeschi. Toronto FC decided to dig into their championship box and bring Victor Vázquez to BMO field.
Vázquez was a crucial member of Toronto FC’s squad when they lifted the MLS Cup in 2017. Vázquez is 35 years old and may or not have played with my grandfather in the past. However, the old man brings a wealth of experience and championship pedigree with him.
“(Vázquez) was 11 when he joined La Masia, Barca’s youth academy. The Class of ’87 youth side was a special one with Gerard Piqué, Cesc Fabregas and Messi, who is five months younger than Vazquez, among its ranks.”
They are not a bad group of kids to learn the beautiful game with.
In 2017 Kristina Rutherford said that Vázquez was “a world-class playmaker who thinks the game at the speed of Lionel Messi and serves as a conduit from the backline to the opposing goal. Victor Vazquez is like no player in Toronto FC history.”
There will be a lot of pressure on Bob Bradley’s squad in 2023. I have no idea what type of impact Vázquez is going to have on Toronto FC this season, but I’m here for it.
