Singapore goalkeeper Izwan Mahbud joins Thai League 2 side Nongbua Pitchaya

Singapore top two goalkeeper Izwan Mahbud has signed a one-season deal with Thai League 2 side Nongbua Pitchaya on Thursday, as reported by The New Paper.

Izwan has been the second Singapore international to play in the Thai second tier next season, following Army United’s Hassan Sunny.

It has been understood that he had taken a pay cut of about 25 percent to secure a move to Nongbua.

“My move is not motivated by money. I am determined to push myself and this is a great opportunity,” the 27-year-old said.

“I know I have to make some sacrifices but I hope this new challenge will reap benefits in the future.”
