May 12: Herdman praises Akinola on his way out

Toronto FC coach John Herdman believes Ayo Akinola “has a big future” ahead of him, even though the MLS club parted company with the young forward earlier this week.  

On Tuesday, TFC announced they had come to an agreement with Akinola to mutually terminate his contract, effective immediately. The mutual termination means that Akinola, 24, is free to sign with any other club, whether in MLS or elsewhere.
