Borjan could return to MLS after disagreement with Red Star manager
According to a report from Serbia, the goalkeeper from the Canadian national team had a disagreement with the head coach of Red Star Belgrade, Dejan Stanković.
Not for the first time, Canadian national team goalkeeper, Milan Borjan, has been linked with a move to Major League Soccer, but this time the rumor could become a reality. The 34-year-old was involved in an argument with Red Star Belgrade head coach Dejan Stanković last week and later stated on Instagram that he wanted out. He has since deleted the post.
Serious offer from MLS
Borjan also wants to shorten the commutes for the World Cup qualifiers in CONCACAF with Canada on the verge of qualifying to the event for the first time in their history. There is therefore a lot at stake for the 34-year-old goalkeeper and a move to Major League Soccer seems like the best option.
Borjan was left out of the squad in Red Star Belgrade's 3-2 win against FK TSC Backa Topola last Thursday and there was no injury report, which ignites the speculation that he will leave in January. It has not been reported which teams are interested in signing Borjan, but it is speculated that it is a Canadian-based one.
The most realistic option is Toronto FC as last season Alex Bono and Quentin Westberg shared time in goal. The Vancouver Whitecaps are happy with Maxime Crepeau between the sticks. Currently Canada’s number two, he could win the 2021 MLS Goalkeeper of the Year award.
