Toronto FC have confirmed that the midfielder Torsten Frings will be missing the rest of the season after suffering an injury to the hip that will see him undergo surgery. The Toronto FC manager has expressed his disappointment to lose a player like Torsten Frings, who has a wealth of experience. The 35-year-old midfielder is regarded as one of the best players in the league due to his experience of playing in many high profile leagues. The club has said that they have decided to take a patient approach in the case of Torsten Frings considering his age.
The player has been a major reason for the success of the club in the last few seasons. He has now been shifted to Germany in order to undergo the medical procedure. The status of the midfielder has gone incredibly low in recent weeks. Now, it has been learnt that the player has been suffering from hip problems for quite a while. He has missed the a number of matches for the club this season. So far, he has missed the five matches at the start of the season, which recently put his future at the club into doubt.
“You’ve always got to take age into consideration. (His injury) is basically wear and tear. It’s basically how successful the surgery is and how successful he is when he comes back into preseason. With the rigours of (MLS) it’s basically a decision he’ll have to make whether he thinks he can do it. We’re expecting him to be back and we’re expecting him to be fit but it’s his body,” said the TFC head coach Paul Mariner in an interview given to the Sun. Mariner has said that one of his first jobs will be to find a new partner for the defender Darren O’Dea.
