No Rifts at TFC, Despite Form
Toronto Sun, August 22nd, 2007 2:15PM

MOST COMMENTED

Is there a mutiny on hand in Toronto? Winless in six, scoreless in six, Toronto FC is just seven minutes away from Major League Soccer's most dubious record: most minutes without a goal. Injuries have certainly played their part, but there's no denying TFC's massive slump. Even so, the Toronto Sun says the players insist that Coach Mo Johnston still has their backing.

Midfielder Andy Welsh, who publicly vetted frustration at being taken out of last week's 2-0 loss to Chivas USA, said he has no problem with the TFC manager and that his frustration was directed toward his team's inability to score. "Obviously I'm not going to be happy at being taken out," Welsh said. "Nobody is going to be happy when they are taken out, but there is no rift between myself and Mo."

"When some senior players on the team read the story they confronted Andy about any kind of rift in the locker room," coach Johnston explained. "He came to me first thing (yesterday) and said he was very upset; that he never said that there was a rift." He added that it was Welsh who requested a meeting with the coach to clear up the matter. "This is a very close-knit group of guys," Johnston said. "I'll tell you they were the ones who were upset about the story, not me. It doesn't affect me one way or the other."
