Mo Johnston responds to rumours that have again surfaced out of New York that Alecko Eskandarian is headed home - by declaring through a media release: "Esky is going nowhere. He is very happy in Toronto and wants a new contract."
Johnston's old media buddies in New York/New Jersey don't appear interested in listening to our great leader. The release mentions the departure of Jon Busch, yet no official word on the Andy Welsh signing, even though Sunderland's Official Website confirmed the move earlier in the day. http://web.mlsnet.com/news/team_news.jsp?ymd=20070323&content_id=86375&vkey=news_t280&fext=.jsp&team=t280
