To fix the club’s defense weakness, Shan United Football Club is preparing to sign defender Win Min Htut, according to the Myanmar National League website.
After Week-9 of the MPT Myanmar National League 2020, Shan Untied is standing in the fourth place of standing table earning 17 points.
“We are preparing to call Win Min Htut at the will of the coach and to fix the weakness of our team’s defense. But we will wait and see his fitness. If it is okay, we will sign him for second round of the season,” said U Han Win Aung, general manager of the club.
Defender Win Min Htut previously played for Shan United FC (former Kanbawza FC) and Myanmar national football team from 2009 to 2018.
In 2019 season, he was injured while he was playing for Southern Myanmar FC, and retired from the team.
“As a footballer, I always want to play football. Shan United negotiated with me. The team used to be my mother team. Therefore, I decided to play for my old team. All football matches are currently suspended due to COVID-19. What happen next is unpredictable,” said the defender.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Myanmar National League, like international matches, was suspended in its Week-10. The date for resuming the matches could not be confirmed yet. —Kyaw Khin
