Adrian Cann Out For The Season

Defender tore his ACL at training on Tuesday morning.

Toronto FC announced Tuesday that veteran defender Adrian Cann will miss the remainder of the 2011 season after sustaining an injury this morning in training to his knee.

“I can confirm that Adrian has torn his ACL and will miss the rest of the season,” said Toronto FC Head Coach and Technical Director, Aron Winter. “It is a disappointment because Adrian has had a good start to the season and has been playing well, we will certainly miss his presence in the line-up. While it is difficult there is now an opportunity for younger players like Nana Attakora and others.”
