Liverpool stint will benefit Frei hugely - Toronto's Mariner

Toronto FC director of player development Paul Mariner feels Stefan Frei's training stint with Premier League club Liverpool will benefit club and player greatly.

The 25-year old Swiss goalkeeper has linked up with the Reds for a winter training spell and the move has been welcomed by ex-Arsenal and Ipswich Town striker Mariner.

"Liverpool is a sensational club and I hope that Stefan is going to go over and learn some stuff. It will be a fantastic experience for him," he told the Toronto Sun.

"He picked up his injury (during the 2011 season) and then Milos Kocic came in and did very well (this season). Stefan is a super professional and he understood it, but we thought it might be good for Stefan to go over and build his confidence up to make sure he has a good feeling about coming back.

"We're in a very fortunate position with two superb goalkeepers."
