Toronto FC boss John Carver is keen to setup a glamour friendly with former club Newcastle United.

"It would be a great game to have one day," Carver told the Evening Chronicle. "I know what the Newcastle fans are like and we have a lot of them in Toronto who come wearing their United tops.

"I always make a point in picking them out and giving them a wave. But to have a lot more of them here would be great."

And Carver compares the Toronto fans with those of Newcastle.

He added: "They are very similar. They are vocal and they get behind their team, just like Newcastle fans do.

"In fact, they are probably the equivalent to the Toon Army in MLS."
