Another Chilean heads to Canada: Aceval inks with TFC By Steven Sandor Posted on January 30, 2012 1 0 650 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter The Chile-Canada soccer pipeline keeps humming along. On a day that former Chilean U-20 product and Colo-Colo prospect Yashir Pinto is expected to arrive on the FC Edmonton scene, Toronto FC announced the signing of veteran fullback Miguel Aceval. Like Pinto, Aceval, 29, is a product of the Colo-Colo system. But he has played with various clubs in Chile and Uruguay, including four in the past four seasons. He was last at CD Universidad de Concepcion before making the deal to come to Toronto. Aceval has one Chilean national team cap — he played in a 2011 friendly against Mexico. “Miguel is an experienced defender that has a lot of potential and can be very important for our club,” said Toronto FC head coach and technical director, Aron Winter, in a release. “Our defence needed to be addressed during the offseason and this signing complements our recent activity from last week.” Toronto FC had the worst defensive record in MLS last season. In the last week, the club was able to patriate right back Richard Eckersley’s contract and signed Ecuadorean Geovanny Caicedo.
