Insigne pulled out of the MLS All-Star Skills Challenge due to a family medical condition

Italian star Lorenzo Ingen has returned to training with Toronto FC

TORONTO – Italian star Lorenzo Ingen returned to training Wednesday after missing Toronto FC’s weekend loss in Atlanta due to what the MLS team described as a “personal family situation.”

The club did not elaborate on the issue when Ingen was absent from training last Thursday, but it was too serious for fellow Italian Domenico Cristo to also miss training “to support Lorenzo and his family”.

TFC lost 4-2 in Atlanta on Saturday, all but ending its faint hopes of making the playoffs. Before Wednesday’s game, Toronto (9-15-7) was 13th in the Eastern Conference, six spots and seven points below the playoff line with just three games remaining in the regular season.

Toronto visits Orlando on Tuesday before hosting Inter Miami on September 30 and then finishing in Philadelphia on October 9.

The Italian trio of Federico Bernardeschi (eight goals and three assists), Insignia (six goals, two assists) and Cristo (one goal) have been involved in 18 of Toronto’s last 22 goals in MLS play, including 12 of the last 14.
