Robbat and Saarvindran to play for Pahang

Harimau Muda A stars Gary Steven Robbat and D.Saarvindran have confirmed that they will be joining Pahang next year.

Besides the duo, five other Harimau Muda A players are believed to have been granted permission to leave the U23 team and further their careers in the M-League.

22-year-old Robbat, who reportedly received offers from ATM and Johor Darul Ta'zim as well,  told FourFourTwo: "I have decided to leave Harimau Muda and play for Pahang next year.

"I haven't officially signed for Pahang yet, but I have acknowledged them about it. 

"I will seal the deal with them before the AFF Suzuki Cup begins."

After graduating from Bukit Jalil Sports School Robbat joined the Harimau Muda set-up in 2008 and was one of the pioneers of Harimau Muda A alongside the likes of Wan Zack Haikal, Thamil Arasu, Muslim Ahmad and Irfan Fazail.

Meanwhile, 22-year-old Saarvindran also informed FourFourTwo about his decision to join the Tok Gajah.

"I'm happy to sign for Pahang because they are a team of champions and it will be a great opportunity for me to play in the AFC Cup.

"I'm grateful that they want to sign me even though I'm not fully fit yet, so I want to come back stronger for them.

"My aim is to perform well to get a place in the team and eventually win trophies and be selected for the SEA Games."
