Ten S.League players who could be released

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

Nur Ridho (Hougang United)

The year 2016 was supposed to be a fresh start for Nur Ridho having been just a bit-part player at Young Lions the previous year.

However, it is the same old story for the former National Football Academy attacking midfielder.

With the likes of M. Anumanthan, Raihan Rahman and Fumiya Kogure the preferred midfield trio for K. Balagumaran, Ridho has hardly got a sniff off first-team action.

It has been a disappointing turn of events for the former Dollah Kassim award nominee, and it won’t be surprising should the Cheetahs choose to release him.

Branko Cubrilo (Geylang International)

Branko Cubrilo has flattered to deceive as a striker

Brought in to become the main striker for Geylang International, Branko Cubrilo has flattered to deceive so far, scoring just once in the league.

In fact, his profligacy in front of goal has prompted coach Hasrin Jailani to move him to the left wing in hopes of improving the team’s fortunes in front of goal.

Still, having a striker who is not scoring, especially a foreign player, does not represent a good investment and it will be no surprise if the Eagles decide to cut their losses and replace him.
