Resurging Toronto FC have been dealt a big blow in their quest to get out of the basement in the Eastern Conference, as striker Danny Koevermans has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.
Toronto FC announced Monday that Koevermans will miss the rest of the year after suffering a torn ACL in his left knee during the club's 1-0 win over the New England Revolution on Saturday. The Designated Player, who had scored nine times this season, will undergo surgery in the near future.
The loss of Koevermans means Toronto will now be without arguably their most lethal offensive weapon. Toronto FC has been playing improved soccer under new head coach Paul Mariner, but their uphill battle in the East has just gotten tougher with Koevermans out for the rest of 2012.
What do you think of Koevermans being ruled out for the rest of the year? Is Toronto all but doomed now? How can Toronto FC make up for the loss?
