Sebastian Giovinco: "I would accept less to stay in Toronto"

Toronto FC made titles on Wednesday night when they sold the former MLSF MVP Sebastian Giovanko to the Saudi club Al-Hilal.

Now new Instagram post from the departing star suggests that the two sides are not divided into friendly conditions.

"As I have always kept him, I was hoping to continue my contract and finish my career in a city that feels at home," Giovinco wrote. "Unfortunately, this desire has clashed with a change in direction with the current management of TFC. For two years I have been trying to extend the contract, but the management did not want it.

"Recently, after they refused to use the club's option for 2020, they offered me conditions that I considered unacceptable, they might say that I went for a more lucrative deal, but that's not the case. Their offer and lack of transparency are a clear message It seems that management prefers to focus on things that are not pure desire for victory.

"After becoming a brand and raising the overall reputation of TFC both at home and abroad, it seems that I no longer serve a goal. I would accept less to stay in Toronto, so I inadvertently announce that my mandate as a TFC player has ended."

Juvigny had one year to stay on his contract with Toronto FC at the time of his transfer and is believed to have signed a three-year contract worth $ 11.5 million for Al-Hilal.

The 32-year-old made $ 7115m in 2018, and the sources told John Molinaro of Sportsnet that Giovinco hopes to sign a continuation of equal value with Toronto, but the club has asked him less.

Juvinko's transfer from the Juventus club in 2015 helped to make the most successful era in the history of TFC. He was a star at the TFC Club who went from underground dwellings in the MLS Cup championship and ends his mandate with 73 goals and 57 assists in regular seasons and MLS playoff matches over four seasons.

"Through hard work, passion and determination, my teammates and I transformed TFC and made one of the best clubs in MLS and North America," Giovinco wrote at Instagram. "This trip was a wonderful experience for my family and for me.

"Without hesitation, I can say that I wanted to finish differently."
