Five MSL imports expected to leave for good
Vranjican announced his arrival with two goals on his debut in July. Similarly, the Argentine scored only two in Pahang’s remaining games.
The Elephants, who were already struggling from a disastrous first half of the season, dived into the transfer market during mid-season in hope of inspiring survival. Pahang’s other July signing Jailton de Campos, Claudio Meneses and Faysal Shayesteh helped Razip Ismail’s charges find stability in defence and midfield but struggled to score.
Had Pahang, who had the second best defence since July, found the back of the net more regularly, they may not have had to rely on a default win over Kedah to stay up. Vranjican’s Malaysian adventure is expected to end before he can even settle in.
