Interim Head Coach Jimmy Weekley is looking forward to further bolstering an already-talented Red Wolves roster, “We are excited to add a player of Ivan’s pedigree to our squad. We look for Ivan to give our team a lift as we make a push for the playoffs.”
“It’s very important that we continue building momentum towards a USL League One championship this season,” says Red Wolves GM & President, Sean McDaniel. “Signing a late addition like Ivan is critical towards that end. He brings USL Championship experience that we believe will translate to a successful late season playoff run and we are looking forward to having him on the field.”
