Two familiar names started for Perak in their friendly match against ATM on Saturday night, according to the startlist released on the Super League side's social media.
29-year old striker Razali Umar Kandasamy has apparently made a return to his boyhood club for a third stint. Razali has always shown potential throughout a career that also included stints with Sime Darby and Felda United, but poor discipline ultimately hampered his growth. However he signalled good things to come, scoring a goal in the friendly ATM.

The other familiar player was 27-year old former Uzbekistan international Oybek Kilichev, who Perak signed before the start of the season, but was then deemed ineligible to play in the Super League by the Malaysian FA.
However another Uzbek was absent from the list. Forward Vokhid Shodiev's name was missing from the list, and it is believed that the 29-year old has been released by the Bos Gaurus due to poor performance, as two other Perak's remaining foreign players were listed in the squad for the friendly match. Shodiev joined Perak at the start of this season.
The friendly match, played at the Perak Stadium, ended in a 2-2 draw with Perak's other goal scored by Brazilian forward Elias Fernandes de Oliveira.
