The former Young Tiger, Syahrul Azwari is now confirmed as a Sarawak player, said the official statement from the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM).
According to the Secretary-general of the FAM, Datuk Hamidin Mohd Amin, both Kelantan Football Association (KAFA) and Football Association of Sarawak (FAS) has reached an agreement that Syahrul will join The Crocs as part of a loan deal.
Taken from Sinar Harian, Hamidin said: “Both sides has reached an agreement that Syahrul be registered to play for Sarawak ‘on loan’ subject to the terms and conditions agreed upon.”
Syahrul Azwari now is eligible to play for Sarawak for 2016 season, and his services are surely needed as the Crocs are currently winless after two games into the season.
According to Bernama, Hamidin added: “As such, FAM hereby confirms that there is no obstacle/restriction on the licence/player registration, and the player has also been allowed to be registered outside the 'Window of First Transfer For the 2016 Season'.”
The saga started when the disbanded of Harimau Muda, and all players were instructed to join their home teams, but they could also join other teams if the home teams did not want them.
Syahrul signed for Sarawak in December, despite being offered to return to Kelantan according to the Red Warriors head coach, K.Devan.
However, in January, the FAM Players Status Comittee made a decision that Syahrul must play for Kelantan and they must negotiate on new terms and conditions of his contract.
However, both parties failed to agree terms, and Sarawak finally held talks with KAFA about signing up Syahrul, resulting in a loan deal.
