Crewe Alexandra manager Steve Davis has called for any new signings at the club to be great athletes rather than being just good footballers. The pre-season for the club will be starting from next month and the players just recently returned to training for doing the conditioning work. Since taking over in 2011, Davis has transformed the club in terms of the virtues and ideologies. He has revealed that a new philosophy will be implemented in the transfer policy of the club, but that will not change the ideologies of the football club under his management.

The club are expected to bring in faster players in the summer transfer window, as the manager has openly admitted that the team needs pace in order to compete. Davis has said that teams that have strong and athletic players have done extremely well. He wants to replicate those ideas at Crewe as well. The club already has a number of players above 6 foot. Some of the players like Max Clayton have managed to put behind their physical disadvantage to become one of the important players at the club.

It has been revealed recently that Davis will have the same budget as last season, while he will be targeting a striker, midfielder and a defender in the summer.

“I want some pace in the team. I believe that the athleticism of your team is very important. If you look at the teams who have done well, they all have quick and strong players right from back to front so that’s really what I’m looking for. I don’t want any pedestrians in the team. I want people who can get around the pitch and work hard and have also got some quality. They will not be easy to find of course, but whatever happens it won’t be for lack of searching for those players,” said Davis.
