John Herdman feels his past experiences make him the ideal manager for Toronto FC.
Herdman was formally introduced as Toronto FC’s new head coach at a news conference today. He will take on the new role starting Oct. 1.
The 48-year-old Englishman stepped down from his post as the bench boss for the Canadian senior men’s national team to take over at the Major League Soccer club.
He says one of his biggest motivations for joining last-place TFC is the chance to develop a new group in a club setting.
Herdman also says he needs to evaluate the team and aims to build a winning culture.
