‘Long term’ Privat inks new Svay Rieng deal

Svay Rieng Preah Khan Reach hitman Jean Marie Mbarga, better known as Privat, signed a “long-term” contract extension with the newly crowned Metfone C-League champions on Thursday.

The club did not reveal the length of the extension.

“He’s a very good player, a great teammate, and an even better person. He is like a brother to me. He deserves this as he is an integral part of our team,” said American defender Jonny Campbell of the deal.

The Cameroonian forward scored four goals in Svay Rieng’s last match, a 6-1 drubbing of Asia-Euro United, to take his tally for this season to 36.

The provincial outfit will be looking for their star striker to continue his outstanding form in front of goal as they look to go through the season unbeaten in their quest to become Cambodia’s first ever “Invincibles”.

Svay Rieng take on second placed NagaWorld at Phnom Penh’s Old Stadium on Friday at 3:30pm in the final match of the campaign.
