Andik Vermansah’s future looks set to be decided within two weeks as the Selangor FA star has been out for four months due to a knee injury.
The 25-year-old was forced out of action since last December after helping the Indonesia national team reached the AFF Suzuki Cup final.
Selangor did not register former Persebaya Surabaya winger for the first leg of Malaysian Super League (MSL) this season as they already have the full quota of four foreigners.
“The team doctors have cleared Andik to play and he looks good in training. But he still lacks match fitness after being sidelined for long,” said Selangor coach P. Maniam was quoted as saying by The Star.
“I will give my recommendations to the FAS (Football Association of Selangor) on which foreign players to be retained in the second transfer window (from May 15-June 11). I think a decision will be made in the next two weeks.”
To accommodate Andik, Selangor need to release one of their four foreign slots which currently are occupied by Liberian striker France Doe, Nigerian defender Ugo Ukah, Romanian winger Victor Astafei and Timor Leste midfielder Juliano Mineiro.
