Speaking to this paper, Thursday, he expressed joy and was incredibly excited that his transfer to Lions has finally materialized.
According to him, Lions FC is a great club and its officials and players are very welcoming, adding this is an opportunity to explore his career internationally. Varney expressed gratitude to his ex-club LISCR FC for helping in getting him to where he is now, adding that he will to tell officials of Lions FC that LISCR made him who he is.
For his part, Soto Roberts, one-time high scorer of the Liberia Football Association National League, has also been picked up by Lions FC. Soto, who played for LPRC Oilers here in the local league and the Lone Star, is reportedly proving his worth in training sessions with Lions FC. He has blessed God for providing him the opportunity to leave the country to play international soccer, promising to do his best to keep Liberia high. The Lions FC is based in Cascade, Seychelles, currently playing in the national league. In 2014, they came eighth in the Seychelles League.
