MLS side Toronto FC have been dealt a huge blow in the wake of Queens Park Rangers decision to recall Julio Cesar from his loan at the Canadian club.
Even though Julio Cesar only played seven games for Toronto FC, he left an incredibly profound effect on the Major League Soccer side. Crying when he announced before the World Cup that he would be leaving, the decision has been confirmed now that QPR have officially recalled him now they're back in the English Premier League.
It only took one game in the Championship for QPR and Julio Cesar to realise that things weren't going to work out during the 2013/14 season. The 34-year-old joined Toronto FC in February and made an impact straightaway with several quality displays.
"We'd like to thank Julio for everything he brought to our club. He made an immediate impact," Toronto FC said in a statement.
This production on the field in MLS saw him given another chance at a national level, with Julio Cesar starting all of Brazil's games as they made it to the semi-finals of the World Cup in South America.
Cesar showed that he still has the quality that made him a European Cup winner with Inter Milan during the last decade, with an outstanding performance in the quarter-final penalty shootout win against Chile.
Things look to have ended on a sour note though for Julio Cesar and his national team after their 7-1 hammering by Germany in the semi-finals. It's unclear as to whether Cesar will be given another shot, but that game hasn't stopped QPR from recalling him.
Will Cesar stay with QPR?
Cesar originally joined QPR in 2012 from Serie A side Inter Milan on a four-year deal, but he was pushed out of the number one spot by former England international Robert Green.
The English goalkeeper is still firmly the number one keeper at the EPL side right now. A solid campaign in the Championship last season saw him earn a two-year contract extension.
It remains to be seen whether or not Julio Cesar is being brought back to QPR to be sold or to actually fight for the number one spot.
But either way, he'll be missed tremendously by his Canadian friends. And the video below proves how much he will miss them too.
