Nelsen to join Toronto in February

Published Add your comment

QPR are set to lose Ryan Nelsen earlier than they had hoped after Toronto FC announced he will join them as head coach from February 1.

The New Zealand defender, 35, agreed his move to Major League Soccer at the start of January, at which stage QPR manager Harry Redknapp said he hoped to keep him on the Loftus Road playing staff for "most of the season".

However, Toronto now expect Nelsen to be at the club by the beginning of next month, announcing his start date at a media day on Wednesday. Asked to confirm the reported news, a Toronto FC spokesman said: "Yes, confirmed."
