The former Reds Designated Player hit an injury-time winner in Dallasâ 1-0 home win over Vancouver Whitecaps and marked the occasion by lashing out at Mariner who traded him to Texas in July.
âIâll never forget the words of [current TFC manager] Paul Mariner saying that he wants to make sure heâll send me to a last-place team and let me burn in the heat,â said de Guzman said.
The victory allowed FC Dallas to go within a point of the fifth-placed Whitecaps in the West and de Guzman was thrilled to contribute as Marinerâs Toronto remain at the bottom of the East.
âIt worked out for myself, getting the last laugh, the karma of things,â he added. âRight now whoâs the last place team in the league and whoâs battling for the playoffs?â
