Jonathan Osorio’s parents, Diego and Bibiana Osorio, raised three boys in Toronto, Canada. Both brothers of Jonathan pursued soccer as their profession.
The firstborn of Diego and Bibiana, Jonathan has been with his team Toronto FC for a decade. He has represented Canada on several occasions but also has a Colombian connection.
The 31-year-old midfielder Jonathan Osorio’s dad, Diego, will say he called it from day one that his son would become a star name in soccer.
He had full faith in him. And Jonathan has paid off the faith his dad showed him by becoming one of the big names in Canadian soccer.
In the ongoing Gold Cup tournament, Jonathan and his country were knocked out by their arch-rivals USA in the quarterfinals. The Arsenal GK, Matt Turner, was the hero of the night as he saved the first two spot kicks during the penalty shootout.
Jonathan Osorio Parents, Diego, And Bibiana Osorio
Jonathan Osorio’s parents Diego and Bibiana Osario emigrated from Colombia to Canada.
The couple raised their three sons in Toronto, Canada, and though they might have left Colombia, their love for Colombia soccer games hadn’t.
Jonathan and his two brothers grew up watching Colombia’s games, and one of Jonathan’s first memory was of celebrating Léider Preciado’s goal with his dad at World Cup 1998.
The father-son duo embraced each other as Colombia won over Tunisia. Diego Osorio, a home renovator, is available on Instagram with the username @diegoosorio57.
All the photos shared by Diego are of his family, especially appreciation posts for his wife, Bibiana. There was always something telling Diego that his son would become a soccer player.
He always believed Jonathan would make it big time. Diego has shared many throwback photos of Diego playing soccer at a young age.
The soccer player has previously shared a few snaps of him celebrating his biggest moments with his family. In 2018, he shared a picture of himself with his parents after he won the 2018 CONCACAF Championship with Toronto FC.
He posed for the cameras with the George Gross Memorial Trophy, with his dad and mom standing proudly beside him.
Along with his parents, Jonathan is also close to his grandmom, whom he wishes along with his mom on Mother’s Day.
Jonathan Osorio Brothers, Anthony, And Nicholas
Jonathan Osorio’s brothers, Anthony and Nicholas, have remained his biggest throughout his soccer career.
Anthony, the secondborn of the Osorio family, always had his brother’s back. Whenever Jonathan would feel demotivated, Anthony made sure to encourage him.
In 2017, with Osorio getting less game time and getting benched in preference to Victor Vazquez, Anthony would call him up to give him moral support.
He would give James Rodriguez as an example and how he was touted as one of the best players on the planet before falling off. Not getting enough game time doesn’t mean you are playing badly was one of the things Anthony would repeat to his brother.
And that confidence boost did work. The next season Jonathan signed a multi-year contract extension with Toronto.
Anthony And His Soccer Career
Anthony, born on April 13, 1994, is two years younger than his brother. He began his senior career with Toronto FC III and was promoted a season later to the second division.
Anthony made 50 appearances for Toronto FC II and played his last game for them in the 2017 season. He then joined Vaughan Azzurri for the 2018 season and last played for Mississauga MetroStars.
He represented Canada on international stages at the U-20 level in 2013. His career after 2018 couldn’t take off after suffering from an ACL tear.
He is available on Instagram with the username @aosorioo and last year traveled to Qatar to watch his brother play in the World Cup.
Nicholas Osorio Plays For Toronto Varsity Blues
The youngest of the three brothers, Nicholas Osorio, is six years younger than Jonathan.
Like his brothers, Nicholas began his playing career with Toronto FC and was part of their team until 2017. He played for Toronto FC III and II and joined Alliance United in 2018.
He currently plays for the Toronto Varsity Blues but is yet to make any significant impact on his team.
