That’s the Google translation of Bild’s bullshit speculation story over Michael Ballack joining former teammate Torsten Frings at Toronto FC, which if were true would mean the club would have to eliminate one Designated Player slot (Hmmm, so who would that be then?).
As one astute Tweeter pointed out regarding this breaking news:
@RWhittall Read it. It’s two paragraphs with the main argument: They’ve got Frings.

Waking the Red looks at this thing intelligently, but I don’t think it’s worth the time. Bild of course printed the Michel Platini wants to merge the Champions League and Europa League story, which has yet to be corroborated by any other source, so…
PS: Hey, TFC faithful. Good on the team for the win last night, but the team is 0-0-8, and they played an expansion team at home in a quite frankly secondary competition. Just because Ecks was sent off doesn’t make them Liverpool in Istanbul, mkay? Also, Stephen Hart forced into a corner re: Doneil Henry on the national team? Chill out. He’s 19. Let’s all take the perspective pills.
