Club side T-Team are resuming their hunt for a foreign forward to replace sacked striker Zachariah Sumikonda.
The latest to undergo trials is Brazilian Marco Tulio, a former player in the Azerbaijan Premier League Team with Turan Tovuz.
Coach Yunus Alif said the 31-year-old player, who could play as an attacking midfield or striker, was being monitored through training sessions and friendlies.
“It is our latest effort to replace Sumikonda whose contract was terminated two weeks ago,” said Yunus.
“Marco is with us on the recommendation of Johor manager Fandi Ahmad. After the FA Cup match last week, Fandi suggested we give Marco a try as Johor had filled their quota of foreign players,” he said.
Tulio will be available to play only after the April transfer window opens if he makes the grade.
“We have tried him out for two days and he appears to be a gifted player. But we need to see more if we are to sign him on,” said Yunus.
