Former Toronto coach takes aim at Mo

MOST COMMENTED

Toronto FC general Mo Johnston told the National Post "There will be legal action taken" -- without specifying the action -- in response to former interim head coach Chris Cummins' criticisms of Johnston and the club. Cummins was most irked about what he perceived to be interference with the club on Johnston's part.

Cummins said Johnston interfered with the lineup selection and that Johnston often waited until late in the week to have these discussions with the coach. "I'd go out there 30, 40 minutes late for a training session because we were arguing about the team," Cummins said.

Cummins said there was a division between the club's Canadian and American players. Cummins said the players held their tongues around Johnston: "The players won't say what they feel when Mo's around." Cummins also said there was a controversy over the bonus money the players would receive for playing an August friendly against Real Madrid.

Johnston has been the director of soccer since the team joined MLS in 2007 and was head coach the first season. Toronto missed the playoffs in each of its first three seasons. After Johnston and new coach Preki made several roster moves, fans brought anti-Johnston signs to the team's home opener earlier this month. Several of them were confiscated by security.
