Speaking himself after making the move, Victor was confident about the Fleetwood town FC. It is the right club for him to get his career going properly.

My first priority was to study and complete my degree. My two previous clubs are FC Miami City Champions and Lauderhill Lions. Football in America is getting big but it is not as crazy as it is over here. It is getting bigger and bigger but I wanted to come over here and play in England.”

“Fleetwood Town is the best club for me. There is a really good atmosphere and as soon as I found out they were interested in me, I jumped at the chance to come over. I feel good and we are playing at a high level. The coaching we receive is first class. A few of the coaches have played in defence for a number of years and they are great people to learn off and help me improve.”

Good luck Victor, For ever a Champion!
