Jackie Chan convinced of Toronto FC deal

Guyana international striker Gregory 'Jackie Chan' Richardson is convinced he will be offered a contract by Toronto FC. Richardson said, "Soon I will make my country proud."

He said it's just a matter of time before he is signed to Toronto FC and after one week training with the team in Florida he is looking forward to returning with them next week.

"Playing here is great so far. I'm a football player so I know how to adjust and what I have to do when so ever I go out on the field. I was asked to stay one more week, but things will be made legit in a few weeks, so I will be making my people proud soon," the striker told the Stabroek News.

"First I had a slight problem adjusting to the different climate but then it was good for me, but words can't really express how I feel and I will continue to work hard to make my dream a reality," Richardson said.

The 26 year-old came to prominence with T&T outfit Joe Public, where he's enjoyed success in the CONCACAF club Championship.
