Will Kelantan revamp their squad in June?

Kelantan Football Association (KAFA) president Tan Sri Annuar Musa has admitted that the Pamoga Qu Puteh The Red Warriors (PQPTRW) squad will go through a major change when the transfer window re-opens next month in order to strengthen their cause in the Malaysia Super League (MSL) as well as stand a chance of competing in the upcoming Malaysia Cup.

Tan Sri Annuar Musa said it would be difficult to find the right players to form new-look team.

“The transfer window opens next month and many teams will be making changes because of the Malaysia Cup, and so will Kelantan,” he said on his official Facebook page yesterday.

“We will try out utmost best to sign the right players. In past experiences, we have learned that it is difficult to sign the perfect players to fit into the team. However, our efforts will not go down in vain. THIS IS FOOTBALL! LEICESTER CAN WIN THE LEAGUE, ASTON VILLA WAS RELEGATED AND KELANTAN WILL CONTINUE TRYING,” he concluded on his Facebook page.

WHAT DO WE THINK?

There have been some reports suggesting that Kelantan will be forming a partnership with FC Bari 1908 as Tan Sri Annuar Musa and Datuk Dr. Noordin Ahmad are apparently good friends. Well, if it actually works out, Kelantan can make the most out of this opportunity. The Serie B will end this month and since Noordin Ahmad owns half of FC Bari, he will be able send a few players to Kelantan to beef up their squad. Dramane Traore is not performing, so look for a suitable replacement in the Italian club to partner Baze Ilijoski up front. Kelantanese football have been inconsistently poor all season long. They received a sponsorship boost by Datuk Seri Vida, and now she’s threatening to pull out if they fail to win their next two games (FELDA United and Selangor). Let’s not get ahead of ourselves when Tan Sri Annuar Musa plans to change a number of names in the squad, because we’ve all heard the promises told to the PQPTRW fans, and none of them have been satisfactory enough.
