Mellberg Winking At Toronto FC

Aston Villa defender Olof Mellberg says he could one day follow former teammate Juan Pablo Angel to MLS.

The Sweden captain, a good friend of Maple Leafs star Mats Sundin, has already discussed the basics with Toronto FC coach Mo Johnston.

“Yes, I have talked about the possibility of playing in North America,” Mellberg told the Toronto Sun.

“I mean, since Beckham signed, lots of players have talked about the MLS as being a place to play.”
