Exclusive: Sarawak snap up Perak wonderkid


Sarawak FA have apparently secured the signature of highly rated Perak young midfielder, J. Parthiban.

Robert Alberts is currently shaping his team for the 2015 season of Malaysian football and was on the lookout for a young and energetic midfielder to strengthen the core of his team.

Parthiban was invited over for a few friendly games last month, in which he impressed Robert by performing admirably and showcasing brilliant work ethic.

According to a source, Sarawak FA went on to offer him a permanent contract after those performances, and he was equally keen on the deal as well.

He small in stature, but possesses tremendous stamina on the pitch, besides being technically good on and off the ball as well. He rose through the ranks of the Perak President Cup squad, before being given the breakthrough into the senior team by Azraai Khor in 2013.
