Lorenzo Insigne



about his experience in the American league so far:

"Always playing for Napoli, I've always been there. So when I came here and I saw that there were all these fans that welcomed me, and they’re from Italy, I was so impressed by it.

“It was very flattering that people across the ocean knew who I am and were waiting for me.

"The easiest part was coming to Toronto, he welcome that everybody had for me and the support and faith they have in me. The most difficult part is me trying to exchange this faith, and providing them with results for my team, and earning their trust in me, not only outside but on the pitch. I'm determined and motivated to give back to the fans what they have been giving to me."
