Waterhouse after Ottey

Former Montego Bay United striker Allan Ottey has said a number of Premier League clubs are seeking his signature, however, Waterhouse is his first choice because of coach Donovan Duckie.

Ottey helped Montego Bay United to the quarter-final last season. The speedy forward is signed to Faulkland in the St James Senior League, but is eyeing a return to Premier League football soon.

"I am training with Faulkland now. Waterhouse called and invited me to training but I don't know yet. I will have to play with Faulkland until December. I will represent Faulkland for three games, then I will know what I am up to because a lot of teams called me, but I don't know yet," he said.

Duckie is familiar with Ottey from his stint as coach with Montego Bay. The player said though other clubs are interested in signing him, Duckie and club president Donovan White are major influences.

"The coach, Duckie, is very good coach and a motivator, so that is part of it. Mr White, the president, is someone I admire," he said

Ottey was expected to train with the Drewsland club last week but that never materialised because of the weather. If a deal does not come through, he will focus on helping Faulkland reach the Premier League.

"I will have about two training sessions with them. If not, look for Faulkland in the Premier League. It's not so bad playing for Faulkland. They are a good team with good management and the players are young and motivated," he stated.

He insists there is no animosity between him and former club MoBay United, he is just looking for a new environment.

"Me and MoBay have no problem. I just want a new environment. I won two Premier League for MoBay and came second once, so I just want to move to a different environment to see what's happening. The club (MoBay) hasn't approached but players have approached me to come back. I have told them not now. I saw Orville Powell days ago and all he said: "Yu gone lef we". I don't have anything bad to say about MoBay."
