Boeung Ket Rubber Field have announced the signing of top-rated striker Khoun Laboravy from Metfone C-League champions Svay Rieng FC.
The Kampong Cham native, who scored the decisive goal in July’s Super 4 play-off final against his new club to deny them a second successive league title, said in an interview posted on the club’s official website (www.beoungketfc.com) on Saturday:
“I’m very happy with my transfer . . . It’s a great club to play for, and I just want to keep playing football. [I’m] ready to die for my homeland club.” The 25-year-old national team star has scorched the domestic scene, claiming Golden Boot awards as top scorer in the 2011 and 2012 Hun Sen Cup competitions as well as in the most recent MCL campaign.
According to club officials, his undisclosed transfer fee has set a new Cambodian record. Laboravy is set to link up with former team-mate Chan Vathanaka. “I think we can form a good partnership like Messi and Neymar,” added Laboravy.
“I hope my ‘little brother’ [Vathanaka] can deliver good crosses for me to score like he used to when we played together at Svay Rieng FC.”
