Maxi Moralez al­most ended up Toronto FC

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

Newly signed New York City FC des­ig­nated player Max­i­m­il­iano Moralez al­most ended up wear­ing Toronto FC colours. Toronto went hard after the Ar­gen­tine at­tack­ing mid­fielder sev­eral years ago with then-man­ager Ryan Nelsen fly­ing out to see Moralez. The deal didn’t go through and Toronto, once GM Tim Bez­batchenko came on board, in­stead went after and landed Ital­ian Se­bas­tian Giovinco. The two are men small in stature but hugely tal­ented, deadly on set pieces and with a fine fin­ish­ing touch. Giovinco is five foot four and 135 pounds while Moralez is 5-3 and 115 pounds.
