The captain hangs up his football boots.
Toronto FC captain and club legend Michael Bradley announced Tuesday that he will retire from professional soccer at the end of the season.
“On January 13, 2014, I sat at a press conference and said that I had never been more excited, determined and motivated to take on a challenge in my entire career. I meant every single word,” Bradley said in a press release. “Over the last 10 years I have shed my blood, sweat and tears to help this club become the best it could be. There were some incredible days – moments that will stay with me for the rest of my life – and some bad ones too.
“But I never stopped giving everything I had. Thank you to all my teammates, coaches and everyone in the club. Thank you to the fans for the unforgettable nights at BMO Field. This city and this club will always be a home.”
Toronto FC only has one game left this season, this Saturday against Orlando City SC at BMO Field. With a record of 4-10-19, TFC will finish last in the MLS and miss the postseason for the third straight season.
