TORONTO - Fringe Toronto FC player Ethan Zeffers was, reportedly, keeping it together on Snapchat this week despite knowing that he will be released from the team soon after MLS Cup is over.
Saying, "Yo! Yo! Yo! It's cup time," during one of his many video posts to the social media service, Zeffers was able to offer a perspective that wasn't depressive despite realizing that he would be moving onto his 3rd team in 4 years.
"It's tough because some of us know that we aren't long for the waiver wire or the USL or the NASL," stated Zeffers to The Nutmeg News on Friday. "But we need to stay positive and keep up that facade until about an hour after MLS Cup where I can post about how much I loved my time here and continue working on my options as a 4th string defender for Real Monarchs."
Zeffers continued his wall of fake upbeat postings, this week, by taking pictures with the giant MLS CUP sculpture and various shots of Toronto while continuously talking about finishing the journey, a sly reference to him leaving the team rather than MLS Cup.
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Zeffers readies his Instagram post about leaving the team, in advance of MLS Cup.
