The Brazilian forward has issues with the conservative and quiet lifestyle in Kedah and wants to leave for Thailand which has similarities to Brazil, his home country
Chayene Santos is currently unsettled at Kedah and is looking to leave during the April transfer window, according to a source who recently spoke to Santos’ close friend; Victor Amaro.
Amaro, who plays for Samutsongkhram FC in Thailand, claims that Santos is eager to leave Kedah to play in Thailand again.
Santos and his girlfriend have been unable to acclimatise to the conservative and quiet lifestyle in Kedah.
Amaro said: “His love life isn’t going along well with his career.
“The culture and lifestyle in Thailand is very similar to Brazil unlike Malaysia and that is why he wants to go back there.”
It is apparent that his unhappiness is affecting his performance for Kedah, as he has consistently failed to get on the score sheet.
The Canaries have no other option but to rely on their local strikers instead.
Santos has also requested help from Amaro to establish contacts in Thailand.
“He asked me to contact coaches in Thailand to find out if they want his services.
One of them is Suphanburi FC Head Coach, Payong Khunnane, who used to work with him back in Esan United,” Amaro added.
Kedah FA officials could not be reached for a response regarding this matter.
