Eliseo Albeiros

Brook Street moved to resolve their winger crisis this evening by signing 34 year-old Spaniard, Eliseo Albeiros from Liga VI side DGATANCE. A fee of just over £85,000 was agreed and Eliseo will go straight into the squad for Wednesday’s match against Hungarian side Miskolci Hazafiak.

“We decided we had no option but to move”, admitted Leoš Loos at the press-conference. “We couldn’t go into a crucial game on Saturday with only one available recognised winger, so we’ve signed Eliseo until the end of the season. After that, we’ll see how it goes”.

Asked about whether it was a wise long-term strategy to buy players over the age of 30, he replied, “What we need at the moment is experience and someone who can come into the team and do a job immediately. All of our recent signings can do that, and although I’d love to be bringing in local boys, we simply can’t throw someone from the Academy in at the deep end. They need to be brought on carefully; not told to sink or swim”.

New signing Eliseo said, “I look forward to playing for Brook Street and I will repay the faith the coach has shown in me”.
