IPOH: Basement side Perak have recruited Lebanese duo Hasan Daher and Imad Ghaddar in their efforts to save the team from being relegated from the Super League.
Perak Football Association (Pafa) president Datuk Zainol Fadzi Paharudin said the two players were brought in to replace Bosnian forward Zelimir Terkes and Burkino Faso centreback Martin Kafando.
“We hope striker Hasan, 30, and 24-year-old centreback Imad can bring improvement to the team.
“I hope their recruitment will lay to rest grouses that we have not taken any actions to improve the team,” he said during the unveiling of the two players.
Imad is cleared to play against Selangor at the Perak Stadium today, but Hasan is still waiting to obtain his International Transfer Certificate (ITC).
Both Hasan and Imad were signed from Iran’s Shabab Sahel FC and Akhaa Alay FC respectively.
Myanmar midfielder Kyaw Zayar Win is the other foreign player in the Perak team.
Zainol Fadzi stressed that the development of the squad was on the right track despite their current position and they would continue to build the team to achieve more success.
“We are not the whipping boys as claimed,” he said. “In games against some top sides, we let in less than three goals.”
Team manager Datuk Azhar Ahmad said another striker would be having trials with the team soon.
“Because nothing is concrete yet, we can’t reveal any information whether we will sign any more players,” he said.
