“Marcus has started training with the team.

“I’m proud to have Chan as part of the team as he will boost the team with his professionalism.

“He is a bonus to the team with his experience and will motivate other players.

“I believe in him, whatever he has I believe will help the team especially in the mid field an area we need to improve on,” he said.

Chan’s inclusion not only gives hope for the U19 team but also his team mates at the Academy in Spain.

“We wish Marcus all the best in his near future, and we hope he can succeed representing his Nation!

“We in CF Cracks are big SI supporters! Let’s go Marcus and let’s go SI!” the Club which is producing players for renown clubs like Barcelona and Real Madrid, said.
