Kota Ranger FC strengthened the squad with the additions of three foreign imports ahead of their opening fixture in the Brunei Super League against Setia Perdana FC at the Track and Field of the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex tomorrow.

The club has acquired the services of Ranilson Batuil, who used to be a captain in one of Sabah FA teams, and one of Sabah FA’s youth development player Md Aidil Safee. They are also boosted by former UiTM FC player Bernard Coulibaly Agele.

Bernard will be reunited with fellow Kota Ranger newcomer Adi Said having played together when they were at UiTM FC in the Malaysia Premier League last year.

The South Sudanese international, who notched 15 appearances for his country, primarily operates as a defender and won the Uganda Super League title with Express FC in 2012. A year later, he was part of the team that triumphed in the Uganda Cup with Victoria University.

The trio signed a contract agreement with Kota Ranger at the Badi’ah Hotel on Thursday.
