Toronto FC players are surprised by the dismissal of coach Aron Winter.

The Dutchman was shown the door yesterday.

"Maybe it's a little surprising that it happened right after we won the Canadian Cup and a league game and after the break," midfielder Jeremy Hall said. "But it's a business and you just have to move on. Maybe it could have happened earlier. We're looking to turn this thing around. I think with the change people will feel refreshed and we can put on a run and try and get ourselves into a playoff spot."
