Persisam plan to test Malaysian striker
Depite frosty relations between Indonesia and Malaysia Persisam are going to give a trial to Malaysian striker Stanley Bernard who played for Persibo Bojonegoro in an East Java League game the other day.
Previously he was with My Team and, according to Wikipedia, in India with Sporting Clube de Goa.
Persisam are also optimistic that Singapore striker Khairul Amri will arrive over the next couple of days for trials.
Now I have no inside track on this but the lad has just returned from a couple of weeks in Serbia with the Singapore national team. And his club side Tampines Rovers have a crucial SLeague game against Beijing Guoan next week. One wonders when Khairul will be able to squeeze in a trip to Borneo.
Of course there is nothing stopping Persisam sending someone to Singapore to watch him is there? Nothing except this attitude that 'everyone must come to us.'
I'm no coach but surely you can see more of a player in a match situation than a training session?
