Chantha Bin will be full of fire in Melaka clash despite empty stadium

Out to make a din: Cambodia’s Chantha Bin wants to make an impression with Perak when the M-League resumes.

PETALING JAYA: Perak’s Thierry Chantha Bin is one happy bunny.

After undergoing rigorous training sessions and two friendly matches, the 29-year-old midfielder said he can’t wait to take on Melaka on Aug 28 albeit in an empty stadium.

In the two friendlies, the Cambodian helped his team beat Kuala Lumpur and UKM with 2-1 victories.

“I feel very happy and excited because we miss the pitch and atmosphere together. During the MCO, it was really hard training alone but now we can breathe a bit, ” he said.

“Training and real games are really, really different so it helps a lot to get back in action to get us back on our feet.

“I’m very happy with the performance of my teammates because we worked really hard and was looking forward to the friendlies.”

Perak will again rely on Chantha Bin and Leandro Santos to man the engine room as they have been instrumental in the team’s early-season good form.

They are now second in the Super League with eight points from two wins and two draws.

“My expectations and goal remain the same when the season resumes. I want to work hard, learn, improve myself and try to win a title with Perak.”
