Toronto FC's season just went from bad to worse.

Days after a record-setting 6-2 loss to the Philadelphia Union, the club announced that starting centerback Adrian Cann tore his ACL in training and will be out for the remainder of the season.

Cann, a 30-year-old Canadian international, was locked in a contract dispute with the club earlier in the season but came around and started 12 games this season. In a statement released by the team, manager Aron Winter singled out Nana Attakora, a player who had been reportedly been frozen out by the club for contract reasons as well, as a candidate to replace Cann in central defense.

Cann had been voted the team MVP last season for Toronto, which is currently 2-5-6 and has a league-worst -10 goal differential.

    I think KC’s chances of ending the road trip with a win just went up a little.

    He wasn’t even called up by Canada for the Gold Cup. Shame, because if he was he wouldn’t have been at TFC training yesterday to get his ACL torn
