Toronto FC had to wait six months for Lorenzo Insigne to arrive in town after signing the Italian international to a blockbuster deal in January.
But TFC will have to wait a little bit longer for the former Napoli captain to make his MLS debut.
Speaking to reporters after Wednesday’s practice, coach Bob Bradley confirmed that Insigne is dealing with a bit of discomfort stemming from a calf injury he picked up while on international duty with the Italian national team last month.
As a result, Bradley confirmed that Insigne, 31, won’t be on the bench for the Reds when they host the San Jose Earthquakes this Saturday. It was expected that Insigne would play his first game for Toronto at BMO Field this weekend.
