As part of TFC Republic's special flashback series, I examine interesting moments in the history of Toronto FC.
In the latest instalment: Considering Federico Bernardeschi's recent outspokenness about the situation at Toronto FC, let's look back to when Jozy Altidore called out club president Bill Manning in the media.
BMO Field has witnessed plenty of memorable contests in its time, but it’s difficult to remember a game that was more entertaining than the wild affair between Toronto FC and Minnesota United FC on April 19, 2019.
Alejandro Pozuelo and Jordan Hamilton both bagged braces in a back-and-forth affair that saw three lead changes in a 4-3 win for Toronto on a rainy night before an announced crowd of 22,651. Hamilton came off the bench to score two late goals and propel TFC to the come-from behind victory. Pozuelo also collected an assist on the night.
The fireworks weren't limited to what transpired on the pitch. After the game, the public became aware of a problem brewing behind the scenes at TFC, and the growing tension between forward Jozy Altidore and club president Bill Manning.
