DPMM FC striker Shahrazen Said looks set to join Malaysia Super League (MSL) outfit Perak for trials, according to the club’s website.
The striker caught the league by storm eventually finishing as the joint top-scorer with 21 goals when DPMM FC previously competed in the Malaysia Super League in the 2006-2007 season.
The former MSL hit-man have been the club’s main striker prior to Roy O’ Donovan’s arrival last season and has since seen limited appearances with Adi Said a preferred choice.
However, he possesses a formidable scoring record for the club and has been bookmarked as a fan’s favourite.
Meanwhile, the club website also revealed that Roy O’Donovan and Rodrigo Tosi have not been offered places next season.
Roberto Alviz is understood to have left the country yesterday for Zagreb after serving for a season in which he stemmed his mark with 18 assists and 5 goals.
The club’s website also revealed that Boris Raspudic is set for a contract extension. The situation on the other import, Joe Gamble remains in the dark.
His compatriot O’Donovan was photographed upon arrival in Sabah sparking rumours of a potential move to the Malaysia Premier League side though the club later clarified that he was only in Kota Kinabalu for ‘personal reason’ and not for ‘professional reason’.
Sabah FA General Manager, George O’ Callaghan, who used to represent DPMM FC for a brief period of time said: “I have known Roy and his wife for several years now and Roy is over here on a short holiday. I understand that it was a club official, who innocently posted a picture of Roy, following his arrival at the airport, on our website without knowing the full ramifications of their actions.”
“Naturally I am looking into it fully as this is not the professional image that we want to be portraying at this club,” he added.
On another note, former Liverpool striker El Hadji Diouf is in Sabah to discuss personal terms ahead of finalising his move to Sabah FA.
Perak finished ninth in the Malaysia Super League last season.
