PSM Makassar land Uzbekistan striker Pavel Purishkin

Indonesian side PSM Makassar have announced the signing of Uzbekistan striker Pavel Purishkin for the second round of Liga 1 this season.

The 29-year-old was signed along with Indonesian star Zulham Zamrun. Purishkin came as a replacement for Australian forward Reinaldo Costa who moved to rivals Persija Jakarta.

Last year, the former Pakhtakor academy player plied his trade in Malaysian Premier League with UiTM FC before leaving for Kazakhstan outfit FC Caspiy.

“Last month I was still in Kazakhstan. Now I will try to give my best for PSM Makassar this season,” he said.

PSM currently sit in the fifth-place table of Liga 1 this season and they are only four points separated from Madura United as league leaders.
