Toronto FC Hands Extensions to Marky Delgado and Richie Laryea

Toronto FC recently signed U.S. international midfielder Marky Delgado and Canada international defender Richie Laryea to contract extensions. According to the team’s announcement, Delgado and Laryea both inked multi-year contracts.

Delgado, who was entering the final year of his deal, played 20 games with Toronto in 2019, scoring two goals and dishing seven assists. The 25-year-old midfielder has been with the Canadian powerhouse since 2015 and has won an MLS Cup trophy with the organization during that period.

“Mark has been such a big part of TFC’s success,” said Toronto’s general manager Ali Curtis. “We are all very happy that he will be remaining with the club as he is an important part of our group.“

Laryea joined Toronto on trial last preseason and managed to earn a contract by displaying some impressive effort. He ended up emerging as an impactful player for the team thanks to his versatility as he was used in the midfield and the defense by head coach Greg Vanney.

Laryea made 20 appearances in 2019 and contributed with one goal and two assists.

“Off the field, Richie’s character and personality are tremendous. He earned this new contract in many ways, and we are excited for him, his family and what he will bring to TFC moving forward,” added Curtis.
