The 34-year-old midfielder disclosed his reason for playing in Indonesia because of his curiousity to try a new football experience

Ceh, 34, arrived in Medan on Saturday and immediately joined the Ayam Kinantan's training camp in Pekanbaru.

The former Club Brugge man, who played at the 2002 Fifa World Cup with his country, revealed his choice to pursue a career in Indonesia was because he wanted to try a new challenge although he admitted it would take time to adapt.

"This is a new experience for me. I know the condition of Indonesia football from my friend Sasa Zecevic (PSMS Medan's defender) and my agent," he said exclusively to Goal.com Indonesia.

"It's hard for me to perform in the inaugural exercise. I spent two days on the way from Slovenia. I still have to adapt, as a matter of a different temperature than the weather in my country."

He added: "I've been to Indonesia before with my wife nine years ago. Our holiday to Bali. No problems, everything was perfect,"

Meanwhile the team manager, Benny Tomasoa asserted that Ceh has officially become part of the PSMS Medan squad.

"Ceh has officially joined with us, He has undergone training with the team in Pekanbaru. So far he showed great ability," he said.

The flamboyant midfielder was capped 46 times for Slovenia and scored six goals.
