Promise Of Attractive Football Brings Faris Home


Written By: Stanley Yeo

Following the unexpected exit of the LionsXII from all Malaysian competitions, LionsXII players have reintegrated into the Great Eastern Yeo’s S.League

While Singapore’s current top star Safuwan Baharudin joined Malaysia Super League side PDRM FA, Home United pulled off a coup by signing winger Faris Ramli.

The Singapore international was highly sought after, but Home’s brand of attractive football eventually lured Faris over to the Bishan Stadium.

“Home United attracted me with their style of play last year and I hope they can keep on doing what they have done last season or even better this year,” explained Faris.

Besides being able to play a scintillating brand of football, Faris was also glad to know that he is joining the ranks of talented players like Ken Ilso, Khairul Nizam and Irfan Fandi.

“All the three players are quality players and they bring something different into the game with their individual strengths. I am really excited to be playing alongside them,” he said.

Playing in Malaysia definitely had an impact on Faris’s growth as a young footballer. In fact, the 24-year-old wide man found the best form of his life in a LionsXII shirt. He ended the 2014-2015 season with 11 goals to his name in all competitions.

The 1.68m tall player was confident of translating his form in the Malaysian league into a productive season with the Protectors.

“[Through my experience in the Malaysian Super League], I will try to be at my best in every training and match and I will try to help the team by assisting & scoring too,” he added.

With the Suzuki Cup slated to be held at the end of the year, Faris stated that he will definitely be performing to the best of his ability in order to secure his place in the national team.

“I want to achieve something this year and that is to win one of the silverware this season,” he said.

“But of course, playing for Singapore is a huge honour and I hope I can represent them at the Suzuki Cup.”
