CARVER IN CANADA: John Carver managed Toronto FC in 2008-09

JOHN CARVER was Toronto FC boss when they were the poor relations of Major League Soccer - now he wants to see the Canadian club's new millionaire heroes make history on Saturday night.

Gregg Vanney's side have home field advantage as they tackle Seattle Sounders in the showpiece finale of the game over the pond.

Never before has a team from Canada won the MLS Cup Final and TFC could never be accused of taking the cheap route to the brink of glory.

Superstar striker Sebastian Giovinco, signed from Italian giants Juventus at the peak of his career, is on a staggering £4.3m a year to fuel the Toronto dream.

That's an eye-watering £83,000-a-week, a figure former Newcastle United boss could only dream of when he was in charge.
