TORONTO - Though Toronto FC has little still to play for this season, interim head coach Nick Dasovic is not going to let his charges go gently into the night.

After TFCs 3-2 loss in Seattle Saturday, Dasovic had some terse words for the team.

If you dont want to be here and fight, then you can make your way out, Dasovic told mlssoccer.net.

No problem. Well let you go and pursue other ventures. But if you want to be here, I only want guys who are going to fight for the football club.

It was not clear who Dasovic was referring to, but highly-paid striker Mista was conspicuously absent from the bench.

Keeper Stefan Frei, likely the clubs MVP this season along with captain Dwayne De Rosario, was even more blunt.

Its very demoralizing. We have to take a good look at ourselves, Frei said.

I need to prove my worth and make sure I deserve to be here and the guys also have to show the front office and the coaches that they deserve to be here next year.

With efforts like this, I dont think many of us deserve to be here.
