Perak, who are in the midst of trying out a number of foreign hopefuls, were reported by Utusan Malaysia to also be giving a Brazilian striker by the name of Anderson Rodrigues a chance. The 27-year-old was fielded in a friendly between Perak and an amateur side a few days ago, with Perak winning 2-0 and Rodrigues himself scoring a goal.
