Tulsa Roughnecks Sign Mallan Roberts
Tulsa, OK– Tulsa Roughnecks FC has signed 26-year-old Center Back Mallan Roberts.
“Mallan Roberts is another great addition to our back line. He has a lot of games under his belt, and has the ability to lead and organize a strong defense,” said Head Coach Michael Nsien, “Mallan has the size to match up with bigger strikers but also the athletic ability to run with more dynamic strikers. He is a very clean passer of the ball with both feet and has great soccer IQ. He also makes us an aerial threat on corners and set pieces. The signing of Mallan is another statement to our intentions of being competitive in the Western Conference.”
Roberts, a native of Freetown, Sierra Leone, began his career at FC Edmonton and was called up for the Canada National team to the senior swad for two 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification matches. He later spent time with Ottawa Fury before signing with the Richmond Kickers.
“I can’t wait to get to work so that we can make some noise in the west,” said Roberts.
