Vukovic gets three more months to try and impress Impact


The Montreal Impact announced Monday that forward Stefan Vukovic will have three more months to try and impress the club.

Vukovic, who led the CSL in scoring last season as a member of TFC Academy, and was in training camp with Toronto FC in 2012, was cut by the club before the start of the regular season. With TFC having no real academy program for players older than 18, there was no place for Vukovic to go if he didn’t get a contract from the big club.

Vukovic was also on the roster of coach Nick Dasovic’s preliminary U-20 squad that held camp late last year.

Vukovic has been with the Impact as a trialist for weeks. But this move gives him a window in which he can prove himself to the club and get the playing time he needs. But, if he doesn’t make it past the three-month mark, where would he go from there?

There are players in NASL who made the jump from CSL to Div.-2 (Kenny Caceros from Capital City FC to FC Edmonton), so that’s not out of the realm of possibility.

    This is why we need a league of our own.

    As long as we continue to run counter to EVERY other country on the planet, our wonderful grassroots base will never produce top level soccer by anything more than a trickle.
