PKR on the road
Preah Khan Reach will be putting a team in the Malaysian M-League next season or maybe just their FA Cup competition - it's unclear from the newspaper's article - which would be a massive surprise to all, as well as a remarkably ambitious step forward for the Cambodian club, who've had an affinity with the country in the last few years. The Malaysian FA vice president Datuk Amin confirmed that an official announcement would come during the Asean Football Federation (AFF) meeting in Vientiane, Laos next week, after both FA's meet to finalise the details. The other foreign team to take part in the M-League and cup next season will be the Young Lions (effectively their country's U-23 team) from Singapore. Depending on whether PKR will be involved in the league or just the cup, and the effect that will have on the Metfone C-League remains very much up in the air as the news seems to have leaked out before anyone was ready for it, and the Borneo Post wasn't particularly clear on the details. The M-League ran from January to July this season, so that would impact big-time if PKR were to join their league competition. We'll await more details of this proposed move in the coming days.
