“I think that the WSL will suit the sort of player that I am because I enjoy the physical, fast-paced nature of European style football. It’s a good balance of technical possession and fast transition play. I really admire the level of professionalism that Olli brings to the game no matter what kind of club he’s managing at. I also enjoy his style of football: possession-based and always looking to change things and be better”, Yallop said.
