Toronto FC’s director of soccer Mo Johnston has called for patience as the team continues to build.

The Reds have begun the 2010 season with one win and three losses but Johnston said that is no cause for alarm as the club is planning to develop a very young playing roster.

“We’re trying to build a strong, young core group of players here,” Johnston said in an interview. “We’ve got a new coach and we’re looking for a squad that balances experience and youth.

“That plan’s still same. Do we wish we had another win or two? Of course. But we’re on track.

“Try to be patient,” Johnston told fans. “We all want the same thing you do, to win.”

Toronto get the chance to turn their fortunes around when they meet the Seattle Sounders at home on Sunday.
