Who will be the starting left-back?

Much like the goalkeeper position, Toronto cleaned house at left-back, moving Luca Petrasso to Orlando City and Domenico Criscito returning to Italy to his former club Genoa.

Themi Antonoglou will likely be the back-up or third string option as left-back but the young Canadian currently has very limited MLS experience and Toronto will look to add a left-back over the course of the next month and a half.

Netherlands international Daley Blind recently became a free-agent after mutually terminating his contract with Dutch side Ajax. Whilst no rumours currently link Blind to the MLS, the veteran would be a very wise Designated Player signing, with ability to play both as a left-back and centre-back at a high level. Ronald Matarrita and Tyler Blackett, both left-backs who just had their contracts expire at MLS side Cincinnati FC also are options available.
