T-Team ready to replace injured Zambian striker Zacharia

The contract of T-Team's imported striker Zacharia Simukonda is expected to be terminated soon after failing to live up to expectations.

In confirming the prospect, coach Yunus Alif said T-Team would test several new players in a day or two to replace Zacharia from Zambia.

"We will test at least six players from Mali, Bosnia and also England," he told Bernama here, today.

Yunus said Zacharia had a thigh injury that would take time to heal and retaining him in the squad would incur losses the team waited for Zacharia to recover from his injury.

"We cannot wait too long and have to find new imported players to avoid a drop in the team's performance," he said.

Yunus said a heart-to-heart talk would be held with Zacharia this evening over the issue of compensation and matters on termination of his contract.

He said T-Team hoped to use the services of new imported players before the final date (Feb 13) for registration of imported players, as announced by the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM).

"If we don't register within this period, we will be forced to wait for the next registration date in April," he said.

Yunus said in the absence of imported players, T-Team would have to depend entirely on local players when facing Negeri Sembilan in Paroi on Feb 8.

"Even without imported players, I am confident local players will be able to  deliver the best," he said.
