Brazilian striker Pedro Junior has departed from Thai League side Samut Prakan City during the extended COVID-19 break, according to recent reports.
The former Buriram United and Kashima Antlers forward signed for the club before the start of the current season, replacing top-scorer Ibson Melo up top for the Sea Fang.
However, the attacker failed to score in his first four Thai League appearances for the side and was often isolated up front in the side’s more defensive approach under coach Masatada Ishii.
