Defender Adrian Serioux trained at BMO Field with Toronto FC for the first time on Wednesday morning. The Scarborough native linked up with the team in Florida last week following his move from FC Dallas and has now arrived in town after spending the last few days relocating.

Serioux admits a trade to Toronto has been something he has been thinking about for some time. “For me it’s long overdue,” he told “It is something I was hoping for a couple of years ago but circumstances didn’t work in my favour then. It’s great to be back home with family and friends and to be back in Toronto playing in front of a big crowd with a professional team.”

As a Canadian international, Serioux’s move north holds extra significance. “It’s a great honour,” he said. “Obviously growing up in Toronto you wish for a big club to be in the city. It’s good for the kids growing up now because they have something to aim for locally. I’m happy to be here and be one of those figures the younger kids can look towards.”

Serioux has been watching the team’s progress very closely over the last couple of years and has high hopes for a successful 2009 season with the Reds. “Toronto has made a lot of changes over the last two years and obviously when you start out it is a new process and you have to go through those changes. Every team has one expectation and that is to make the play offs and win a championship. If you aren’t thinking that way then you shouldn’t be playing this game. The squad is looking strong and we have a lot of talent out there. I would be very disappointed if we didn’t at least achieve our goal of making the playoffs and turning a few heads.”
