A Frenchman's triumphant return to the City of Brotherly Love was cemented with his press conference, during which a love for Philadelphia was discussed.
"The only team I wanted to play for was Philadelphia," Sebastien Le Toux told the media at today's press conference, which was also streamed on the Philadelphia Union's official team website.
Le Toux went on to say that he almost felt destined to play in Philadelphia, even after traveling around North America last year.
"I have stars in my eyes. I am so happy to be back here," Le Toux said. "When you are somewhere, it's meant to be, and I'm meant to be here."
Nick Sakiewicz, team CEO and operating partner, sat to Le Toux's left and John Hackworth, the head coach and team manager, was to his right as the trio fielded questions from inquisitive media members who wanted to know more about why the striker was brought back after such an acrimonious departure.
"We missed Sebastien as a person," Sakiewicz said. He also stated that the effect of losing Le Toux was more than on the field, it was off the field because of his charity work and relationship with the fans.
Sakiewicz ended the conference by announcing that the team would hold a meet and greet for fans and Le Toux at Kildare's of West Chester. The event will start at 6:30 pm.
