As Toronto FC gears up for the 2024 MLS season, head coach John Herdman is leaving no stone unturned in reshaping the team. The latest addition to his coaching staff is journalist Peter Galindo, who will take on the role of performance analyst.
According to the site Waking the red, Galindo, a native of West Vancouver, B.C., has an extensive background in sports journalism, having spent over a decade in the field. His expertise in tactical analysis caught Herdman's attention during his time with the Canadian men's national team.
Galindo made his mark as a sports journalist in Toronto in 2012, contributing to outlets such as Sportsnet, Canadian Soccer Daily, and TFC Republic. His analytical mind and tactical insights were evident during his involvement with the Canadian men's national team, where he played a role in key victories in the CONCACAF Nations League.
Herdman, speaking about Galindo's addition, emphasized the importance of his analytical contributions and praised his determination. The move is in line with Herdman's broader strategy of bringing together a team of skilled and dedicated individuals to elevate Toronto FC's performance.
