Peterson 'surprised' by Toronto trade

MOST COMMENTED

The makeover of Toronto FC has accelerated with the impending debuts of midfielder Torsten Frings and forward Danny Koevermans.

TFC sent allocation money to Vancouver in exchange for midfielder Terry Dunfield, and sent three players to San Jose to acquire midfielder/forward Ryan Johnson, allocation money, and a senior international slot. The moves came in the wake of head coach Aron Winter's proclamation last week that trades were imminent along with the arrivals of Frings and Koevermanns.

One of the three new Quakes is midfielder Jacob Peterson. Of his move west along with defender Nana Attakora and forward Alan Gordon, he said, "I was surprised. I knew Aron made those comments about trading players after the last game, but for someone who when healthy I was starting every game, I didn't think too much of it with regards to my personal situation."

While he welcomes the chance to reunite with former TFC midfielder Sam Cronin, who was traded to San Jose last year, Peterson questions whether the Canadian club is headed in the right direction.

"I thought Sam was a great player who they should have held on to," he said. "That seems to be a common theme with Toronto. You see what Nick LaBrocca [traded to Chivas USA for Gordon in March] is doing this year and other payers around the league recently traded by Toronto. It makes you stop and think."
