Perak reject chubby Wreh


IPOH: “Overweight” Liberian striker Christopher Wreh has gone home after just one session of trial with Perak. 

The former Arsenal striker, who last played for St Mirren in the Scottish league a year ago, featured in a friendly match against a club side last Saturday and scored two goals in the 4-2 win. 

The cousin of former FIFA World Footballer of the Year, George Weah, has a wealth of experience but his poor physical condition restricted his speed and agility. 

Manager Datuk Jamal Nasir Rasdi said that they told Wreh that he needed to shed weight if he wanted to be in the Perak team. 

“He has not been playing for some time and he was certainly not match fit. We are really disappointed. We never expected him to be in such a poor physical condition,” said Jamal. 

Assistant coach Zakaria Mohamed said that they were told that Wreh had left Ipoh after they returned on Wednesday from the Premier I match in Pasir Gudang against Johor FC. 

“We would have signed him up if he had passed the physical and medical tests,” said Zakaria.
