Toronto FC forward Ayo Akinola is set to miss the remainder of the 2021 MLS season with an ACL tear.

Akinola has scored three goals in 11 games (eight starts) this season for Toronto.

The TFC Academy product has scored 13 goals and two assists in 38 games (21 starts) since making his MLS debut in 2018.

Toronto FC announced on Tuesday that Akinola will return to the squad in the coming days for further evaluation by the club’s medical staff.
