CINCINNATI, Ohio – FC Cincinnati announced on Wednesday it had signed forward Sean Okoli and midfielder Michael Millay ahead of the 2016 USL season.
“Anytime you get an opportunity to add to the quality of the group, it’s a no-brainer,” said Cincinnati Head Coach John Harkes. “Sean is a great striker and a kid who offers a big threat. He’s somebody who likes to score goals and get around the box and is a terrific person, as well, off the field.
“Michael really showed great heart and determination through the combines. It’s great to have him as part of the team and involved in the training environment and he is also someone who connects to the community.”
