Ceres-La Salle FC club director Ali Go, over the weekend, said that 2015 is a big year for football.
“Lots of tournaments are coming – the PFF-Smart Cup, UFL League, UFL Cup and the AFC Cup. And our team will begin the training on January 8 as we prepare to defend our PFF-Smart Club title,” Go revealed.
The Ceres FC official also hinted that they might have some new players coming in. “As of the moment we are still negotiating with some players. We might get one foreigner and a Filipino. Carli (de Murga) is injured, so we have to get a replacement,” he stressed.
However, Go did not give any hint on the identity of the new players or from what particular club they are coming from.
The Bacolod-based and multi-titled Ceres-La Salle FC is set to face Maziya Sports and Recreation of Maldives this February at the latter’s home turf for the Asian Football Confederation Cup Play-off match.
The winner will join Group E alongside India’s Bengaluru, PersipuraJayapura of Indonesia, and Warriors of Singapore.
Meanwhile, reigning UFL Division 1 champion Global FC joins Yadanarbon of Myanmar, South China of Hong Kong, and Pahang FA of Malaysia in Group G.
“With hard work and dedication, and the support of the fans and people of Negros, we will have a good year this 2015,” the club director said.
“We also thank the full support of the management and the Ceres’ owner. We will give 100% every game for the club and for the fans,” he added./
