YANGON: Myanmar Southeast Asia Games staged market for athletes transfer as it pulls its curtain for the athletes of the region in various sports to shine.
The “Three Plus One” agreement made by ASEAN football associations urged regional football clubs to look for Southeast Asian footballers to hire for their new football season.
Every football club in the football leagues of the region is allowed to hire up to three foreign players from all over the globe plus one foreign player from the Southeast Asia region.
It means that the club managers and coaches look for the outstanding stars who will emerge from the tournament.
The under-23 football players are ready to show up their brilliant skills and performance to the appeal of these player seekers.
Ahead of the Games, Myanmar under-23 footballer Kyaw Zayar Win received a transfer offer from Malaysian Super League’s Perak FA which promises to pay him 5,000 U.S.dollars on the basis of monthly salary and asks to make a one-year contract.
Another is Kyaw Min Oo, a young footballer from Mandalay Academy who also faces similar offer, but with him the negotiation has just started.
“The SEA Games will surely enhance the player transfer and Myanmar football players will have chance to go outside and play in foreign clubs. We guess the transfers will be plenty in coming season,” Okocha from Myanmar Football Federation told Xinhua.
In other sports too, Myanmar volleyball selections Aung Shu and Kyaw Kyaw Htwe are contacted to play in Thailand’s Chung Buri volleyball club after the Games as both stood out in 2012 Asian Men Club Championship in Shanghai, China.
It is just to wait and see how many and who the athletes are, appealing to the eyes of the club owners, coaches and managers in the Games to make this transfer.
