Soolsma, TFC part ways by “mutual consent” By Steven Sandor Posted on July 11, 2012 1 0 630 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Toronto FC announced it has parted ways with Dutch forward Nick Soolsma “by mutual consent.” The team made the announcement on Wednesday, just hours after confirming that it has sent midfielder Joao Plata on a six-month loan to LDU Quito, five days after Quito confirmed the move and the player had started training with the team. Soolsma was one of three players arrested in Houston in June for public intoxication after an alleged incident with police outside a nightclub.

Clearly, during TFC’s split managerial structure, when Winter and Mariner were both in management roles, there were players who would be seen as “Winter’s guys” and “Mariner’s guys.” And Soolsma’s playing time had dwindled as Mariner came to power and replaced the 4-3-3 with a 4-4-2. So, call this a writing-on-the-wall move.
