Protectors expect Hassan to return Home after Japan jaunt

Singapore No.1 Hassan Sunny is expected to return to Home United after a training stint with J.League 3 side Gainare Tottori. 

Hassan was invited to train with the Japanese side and he featured in a 3-3 draw with South Korean outfit Incheon United in a pre-season friendly.

The goalkeeper was slated to play against Dezzolla Shimane in another friendly but inclement weather meant he could not do so.

Hassan is under contract with HUFC currently and will be required to fulfil all professional obligations to the club during the period of his contract

Gainare Tottori were reportedly impressed by the custodian but if they want to sign him they will have to move quickly as the J.League 3 season kicks off on March 11.

Until then, Home asserted that Hassan remains a Protector and is integral to their plans for the 2017 campaign.

"HUFC is committed to the continued professional development of our players and this training opportunity will be invaluable for Hassan in his development and contribution to the club upon his return,” Home chief executive Azrulnizam Shah told FourFourTwo.

“Hassan is under contract with HUFC currently and will be required to fulfil all professional obligations to the club during the period of his contract."

Hassan previously played in Thailand for two years with Army United, until the club’s relegation last year resulted in him being surplus to requirements.
