Toronto FC and the 23-year-old player have mutually agreed to terminate his contract, making him a free agent in the market. Despite showing good potential, he couldn't secure a spot in TFC's first team.

Antony Curic joined Toronto FC in December 2020, debuting in USL 1 until 2021, where he earned significant minutes in the club's lower divisions for his career development. However, over the years, he couldn't find a place in John Herdman's first team, making it best for him to part ways with the club.

For the Canadian defender, opportunities with The Reds' first team were limited. Despite his impressive potential as a central defender standing at 1.92m, it wasn't enough to break into the team, and he will now continue his career elsewhere.

A Brief Stint with Toronto FC's First Team

In 2023, he was called up for 3 first-team matches, playing only minutes in 1 of them, which occurred in the match against CF Montreal in a 2-0 defeat on May 14, 2023.

A year later, Herdman considered him again for the Canadian Championship, calling him up for the second leg against Saint-Laurent in Toronto FC's 8-1 victory on May 22 of this year. In this match, he played the entire game and performed well against the League 1 team.

But now, it's time to part ways with Toronto FC, as they mutually agreed to terminate Antony Curic's contract. He played 57 matches between Toronto FC II and Toronto FC.

The club wishes him the best in his future endeavors, hoping he fully realizes his potential and acknowledging his positive career in the club's lower divisions, marking 3 exciting years with Toronto FC.
