Hariss: I’m disappointed, but Home is the best place for me now

Singapore vice-captain Hariss Harun is disappointed his move to Spain did not pan out as he had hoped, but he is grateful for the chance to play in the S.League once more. 

Hariss was originally loaned out to CE L’Hospitalet but owing to the club’s taxation issues, they were unable to secure the work permit required for the midfielder to be registered.

As a result, Hariss had to look elsewhere to resume his playing career and Home United pounced on the opportunity to sign him on loan until June.

The 26-year-old began his career with Young Lions back in 2007, spending four years with the club before moving to LionsXII and then JDT.

“Definitely, the worrying part is out of the way for now until June,” Hariss told the assembled press at Bishan Stadium after his signing ceremony.

“Pretty much everyone should know by now the situation … things didn’t work out because of things that are beyond my control.

“I haven’t played games for some time and at this point of time the S.League offers me that.”

Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT) announced Hariss would move back to CE L’Hospitalet in June, when the club’s taxation situation should be resolved.

Ideally JDT will be trying to get me back into Spain again, so we will see when the time comes

While there is the possibility of Hariss not being able to obtain the paperwork required for him to play for CE L’Hospitalet again, the player is refusing to be bogged down by such negative thoughts.

“As of now, it’s till June, after that we will see how the situation is," Hariss shared. "Ideally JDT will be trying to get me back into Spain again, so we will see when the time comes.

“To my knowledge, I don’t know (whether the same issue will arise) ... I don’t really know much about it, (but) what I know is I haven't played any games yet which is not good for me.

“This is the best place (Home United) for me to be at this point of time.  I will try to move forward as a player to make myself ready (and) hopefully in June, an opportunity comes again.”
