Julio Cesar unlikely to stay with Toronto FC

Published Add your comment

Toronto FC have been heralded by MLS fans this year as they added proven International players to their roster. However, now one of those stars could have played his last game for the Eastern Conference side.

Julio Cesar, the Brazilian goalkeeper was robbed of a farewell game for Toronto after a bout of illness kept him from playing against the New York Red Bulls last week.

Cesar will now join up with the Brazilian national side for the World Cup and is expected to rejoin QPR after the tournament has finished.

The 'keeper joined Toronto in February in order to get some game time ahead of the World Cup this summer.  Despite experiencing some decent success alongside the likes of Michael Bradley and Jermain Defoe, he will honor his agreement to rejoin QPR in the summer.

Cesar told Toronto media“I’m still under contract for the next two years. So even if I win the World Cup, I’m going to keep to my word, I’m going to return to my club (QPR) and help them win championships. That’s what I was contracted to do, so that’s what I’m going to do.”

QPR have the opportunity to gain promotion to the Premier League when they face Derby County in the Championship Play-Off Final this Saturday.

It's not clear if Cesar has his eyes on playing in the Premier League as opposed to MLS but the International will clearly be missed by Toronto.

Head coach Ryan Nelsen was appreciative of Cesar's work when speaking to media:

“Julio’s been absolutely fantastic here and if he decides to stay, brilliant. But if he decides to move on and QPR decides to move on, then Toronto will move on."
