2014 RHB Singapore Cup winners Balestier Khalsa have come up with a slightly unusual way of recruiting new players for this season...
Want to be an local football superstar? Here's your chance... for a limited time only!
Singaporean club Balestier are on the lookout for new players this preseason, and apparently posted a job advertisement on JobsBank, a public job portal which is managed by the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA).
The advert, which was posted on the last day of 2014 has been viewed 96 times in the past 48 hours, although only three people seem to have applied for six job vacancies.
A Marko Kraljevic-led Balestier finished comfortably in mid-table last season, but embarked on an epic Singapore Cup run to the final where they beat favourites Home United 3-1.
While former Dinamo Zagreb hitman Goran Ljubojevic and Korean playmaker Park Kang Jin led the way, neither will be at the club this season as Kraljevic looks to rebuild.
But what does it take to be an S.League player though?
The Tigers seem to be looking for versatile footballers who can play a variety of positions (although a ball-playing goalkeeper-cum-attacker might be a bit of a stretch).
And of course there's the dreaded 2.4km requirement!
While the passing mark this season is 9 minutes and 45 seconds, Balestier have set the bar at an even 10 minutes.
Think you could make it professionally? Why not give it a go today! You could just be the next Christopher van Huizen!
