Luka Gavran wasn’t happy about how his chance came about to land a contract with Toronto FC.
Nevertheless, the former TFC 2 goalkeeper now finds himself in MLS and he’s ready to make the most of the opportunity he’s been given.
In August, Toronto FC signed Gavran to an MLS deal through 2023, with options for 2024 and 2025. He was added to the roster via the MLS Extreme Hardship rule, which allows a team to sign a player to its roster when it has fewer than two goalkeepers or has less than 16 outfield players available.
Both starter Sean Johnson (fractured hand) and third-stringer Greg Ranjitsingh (knee) are expected to be out long term, which forced the Reds to sign Gavran, a 23-year-old native of Hamilton, Ont.
