Exclusive: Perak considering move for Brunei’s Shahrazen Said

Perak FA are considering the option of signing Bruneian forward Shahrazen Said, to beef up their squad as well as fill in the Asian foreign player quota for the 2015 Malaysian Super League.

The Seladangs are close to finalizing their squad, though they are currently working to secure the signature of foreign players, with Shahrazen said to be attracting their interest significantly after he was recently offered a trial by the Perak FA management.

The 28 year-old striker is no stranger to the Malaysian football scene, having finished as Super League top scorer back in 2007, when Brunei DPMM FC were part of the competition. Since then, he has been plying his trade in the S.League with DPMM FC, besides a short loan spell with Wijaya FC in the Bruneian league back in 2011.

He has also featured for the national team, and was part of their squad for 2012 AFF Suzuki Cup qualification stages.

Though Shahrazen isn’t exactly the most explosive forward out there, he comes with a wealth of experience. and certainly has the knack of doing well when on form. With Perak made up of a fair amount of young players, Shahrazen could perhaps be the sort of signing they need to balance out the ‘experience vs youth’ scale.
