Toronto FC made headlines Wednesday night when the former MLV MVP Sebastian Giovinco was sold to Saudi club Al-Hilal.
Now new Post Instagram from a remote star suggests that both sides are not divided into friendly conditions.
"As I always said, I was hoping to renew my contract and finish my career in a city that feels at home," Giovinco wrote. "Unfortunately, our desire was faced with a change in direction with the current TFC management, and in two years I tried to prolong the contract, but the leadership was reluctant.
"Recently after I refused to exercise the opportunity of the club for 2020, I was offered conditions that I find unacceptable, maybe they say that I have gone to a more lucrative agreement, but it is not. Their offer and lack of transparency is a clear message. , that management prefers to focus on things other than pure desire to win.
"After expanding the brand and raising the overall reputation of TFC both at home and abroad, it seems to me that I no longer serve purpose." It would be less acceptable to stay in Toronto, so I reluctantly announce my mandate as a TFC player.
Giovinco had another year contract with Toronto FC at the time of his transfer and is expected to have signed a three-year deal with Al-Hilal for $ 11.5 million a season.
The 32-year-old American had a league of $ 7,115 million in 2018 and sources told John Molinar at Sportsnet that Giovinco hoped to sign the same value as Toronto, but the club asked him to take less.
Giovinco's transfer from the Serie A Juventus club in 2015 helped trigger the most successful TFC history. He was a star in the TFC club, who went from the underground population to the MLS Cup champion and ended his job with 73 goals and 57 assists in 125 MLS regular seasons and playoff games over four seasons.
"Through hard work, passion and determination, I and my teammates and I have transformed TFC into one of the best clubs in the MLS and North America," writes Giovinco at Instagram. "This trip was a great experience for our family and for me.
"It is without hesitation that I can say that I wanted it to end otherwise."
