Players on move Crown World Cup hero in Naga move

Four of the seven Phnom Penh Crown players indefinitely suspended by the club for alleged match-fixing in November and subsequently cleared of all charges by the Disciplinary Committee of the Football Federation of Cambodia have joined NagaWorld ahead of the Metfone C-League season, which begins on Friday evening.

According to NagaWorld FC team manager Thin Tiny, Sous Sohana, the only Cambodian player to score a goal in the second round of the Asia zone World Cup qualifiers, is among the four moving within days of the FFC’s rejection of the charges laid by Crown.

The other three players heading to Naga with Sohana are keeper Yok Ari, Sary Matnorotin and Ngoy Srin. The other three players cleared of wrongdoing, Thong Da, Toch Sok Heng and San Usaphea, have yet to decide on moves.

The Disciplinary Committee hit youth coach Bouy Dary with a two-year ban while punishing three other coaches Nguon Chansothea, Ser Seyna and Tes Sophat with a one-year ban each.
