Cambodian supporters became furious after Chan Vathanaka played only five minutes in his debut game for J3 League’s side Fujieda MYFC on Sunday.
In the 1-1 draw with Sagamihara FC, Vathanaka was named in Fujieda MYFC’s line up as one of the club’s substitutes, and he was used in the last minutes of the match as he came off the bench in the 86th minute.
Most of the Cambodian fans became angry with Fujieda MYFC and started unfollowing the club on social media, with a majority of them asking him to come back.
After joining Fujieda MYFC of the J3-League from Boeung Ket Angkor, Cambodia football star Chan Vathanaka is expected to improve his performance and growing his fan base in Japan.
However, eight months after his arrival, the 23-year-old midfielder has made only an appearance in a league game, and football fans in Cambodia are asking him to return home.
