Crown fail to sign hotshot Prince Justine

THE much speculated transfer of the Cambodian Premier league's top scorer Prince Uche Justine finally never happened with his club Spark FC unable to reach an agreement with Phnom Penh Crown. Crown manager Makara Be claimed he did everything possible to lure the prolific scorer to the reigning champions, but to no avail, resigning to the signing of former Naga striker, Cameroon born Ousmannou Mohamadou as his foreign player transfer allowance during the July window. Prince Justine was suspended for Spark's game against Naga Corp Saturday after receiving two yellow cards.

Meanwhile, Crown striker Tunji Ayoyinka played possibly his last game for the club Saturday ahead of his trip to join an undisclosed side in the Turkish second division. According to the player, two teams are interested in his signature.
