Gam­bian to turn ‘local’ for Pa­hang?

New Straits Times - - Sport -

Malaysia in 2012 when he signed with Tereng­ganu and has been here since. He also played for Po­lice and Perlis be­fore join­ing Pa­hang this year.

Su­mareh meets Fifa’s cri­te­rion (for a player to as­sume a new na­tion­al­ity), which reads that a player must live for at least five years after reach­ing the age of 18 on the ter­ri­tory of the rel­e­vant as­so­ci­a­tion and has never played for any other na­tional team.

When asked about his cit­i­zen­ship ap­pli­ca­tion, Su­mareh did not want to com­ment but stated that he was open to the idea.

“Su­mareh came here with his busi­ness­man fa­ther 11 years ago. He stud­ied and played foot­ball here. I am re­cep­tive. Why not? It is okay to try (for cit­i­zen­ship),” Dol­lah told Time­s­port yes­ter­day.

Pa­hang have al­ready signed for­mer Boca Ju­niors B mid­fielder Yamil Romero and the Ar­gen­tine will be reg­is­tered when the mid-sea­son trans­fer win­dow opens to­day.
