Toronto FC announced that it has “mutually parted ways” with former United States international striker Terrence Boyd. Boyd signed with the MLS club in March after struggling to break into the Starting XI of German 2. Bundesliga side SV Darmstadt 98.
Boyd made 13 appearances for Toronto (11 in MLS and 2 in the CONCACAF Champions League), but he only played 423 total minutes for the 2017 MLS Cup champions. He failed to score or assist in his brief time with Toronto. Shortly after Boyd’s release, German 3. Liga (third division side) side Hallescher FC announced his signing to the club.
Hallescher finished fourth in the 3. Liga season, narrowly missing out on a spot in the promotion play-offs. However, they only scored 47 goals in 38 matches (13 of the league’s 20 teams scored more).
Boyd has earned fourteen caps and recorded three assists for the United States Men’s National Team since debuting in 2012. His once-promising international career was derailed by a series of injuries that kept him sidelined from December 2014 to June 2016. Boyd’s last USMNT appearance came in an October 2016 friendly against New Zealand.
Is this a good move for Boyd?
