TFC caretaker coach Paul Mariner snapped up O'Dea last month.
‚ÄúI just think it‚Äôs something that comes naturally to me,‚ÄĚ O'Dea told mlssoccer.com. ‚ÄúI‚Äôve captained most teams I‚Äôve played in and maybe something the team has lacked is a little bit of leadership. Hopefully, I can bring that. There‚Äôs plenty of talent here, you can see that straightaway.‚ÄĚ
Mariner is happy to have him.
‚ÄúHe‚Äôs the leader that we need,‚ÄĚ the TFC boss said. ‚ÄúAs soon as we blew the whistle to start practice, you could hear his booming voice, and that‚Äôs exactly what we need.‚ÄĚ
