KUALA TERENGGANU: T-Team’s under-performing import player Caleb Folan is expected to be given the boot when the April transfer window opens.
The former Republic of Ireland striker arrived to the east coast club this season with a reputation of having played in the English Premier League but the 30-year-old has failed to score a single goal.
T-Team are languishing in the second last spot with nine points in the Super League and have scored only three times.
With a two-week break preceding the transfer window, the Titans will be playing several friendly matches in Kuala Lumpur and the management has arranged for several foreign players to be given tryouts during that period.
“We will be playing three teams in Kuala Lumpur between March 17 and 23 and we will be testing several prospective players from Cameroon, Nigeria and Brazil during the matches,” said T-Team FC chief executive officer Abdul Rasid Jusoh.
“The fact that we can only score three goals in 10 matches this season showed that our strike force is blunt and poor. A lot of fans and stakeholders have urged us to take drastic actions to solve the problem.
“After a meeting with the board, we have agreed to reconsider Caleb Folan’s status at our club and bring in a replacement who can deliver the goals,” said Rasid at a press conference yesterday.
