“I need central defenders and midfielders to strengthen the team.”

“Modern football is played with offensive midfielders and I don’t have a lot of them.”

“I also need sharp strikers, that is typical goal scorers.”

“In all I am looking at signing 8 players in the transfer window.” Annor Walker said.

Walker took charge of Olympics after the departure of Seth Hoffman.
