Champions Crown release two foreigners, Borey signs on

Metfone C-League winners Phnom Penh Crown yesterday announced that two of their foreign contingent – Brazilian midfielder Rafael Oliveira and South Korean forward Jeongho Kim – would not be having their contracts renewed for the next season and would leave the club. “[Oliveira’s] spell in Cambodia was full of very bad luck,” Crown coach Sam Schweingruber stated on the club’s official Facebook page yesterday.

“Injuries have put him out of action and when finally he was back fit, our team was on a winning streak and he didn’t manage to get enough chances to play. He deserved to be playing more as he has impressed everyone at the club with his professional attitude and good character.”

Scweingruber also praised the contributions of “one of everyone’s favourites” Jeongho. “We will always remember his amazing goals he scored for us,” added the coach. “As a young player of his qualities, he deserves to be part of a team that he gets to play more often, of which there is no guarantee at Crown.”

Meanwhile, the club secured the services of national team veteran striker Khim Borey with a contract that runs until the end of the 2016 season. Borey netted 14 goals in the most recent domestic league and cup campaigns. “Off the field, Borey is equally as important with leadership and guidance for our younger players. I am very happy he has chosen to be with us for another two years,” said Schweingruber.
