• Former prodigy Pennant tries luckin Singapore


    SINGAPORE: Former Arsenal and Liverpool winger Jermaine Pennant arrived in Singapore on Thursday to try his luck in the lowly S.League as he approaches the tail-end of what was once one of the game’s most promising careers. Pennant, a former prodigy who was snapped up for a head-turning two millions pounds by Arsenal when he was just 15, flew in for a trial with Tampines Rovers, five-time winners of the Singapore league. Tampines have been on a big pre-season recruitment exercise, and the unglamorous S.League badly needs a boost in the face of a steady fall in attendances. Pennant’s career has been in decline since the heady days when he played on the wing for Arsenal and Liverpool, gracing some of the world’s most famous stadiums.
