Former MLS MVP Amado Guevara has played his last game with Honduran power CD Motagua last weekend and appears ready to return to the MLS with Toronto FC.

According to this detailed report from Honduran newspaper La Tribuna, Guevara bid farewell to his long-time Honduran club as he prepares to move on to play with the Reds.

“I don’t know if in four years when my contract with Toronto expires if I will still want to play,” Guevara said when asked if he might come back to Motagua for the fifth time in his career.

For Toronto, getting Guevara can’t come soon enough. Two straight losses to open the season due to poor midfield play and a lack of creativity up front has only lead to one goal from the Reds. Most reports say Guevara has his head on straight for once and that has to be a good thing to hear for Toronto fans. Getting a fit and well-minded Guevara should help restore this club here early on this season.
