Former Lion and defender Safuwan Baharudin has rekindled his relationship with Selangor in the Malaysia Super League.
The Singapore international was released by Negri Sembilan after half the season, and he returns to Selangor which he was part of from 2022 to 2022.
The defender said that he had other offers on the table, without naming the clubs.
“I received several offers from the Thai League,” he told New Straits Times.
“However, my parents advised me to stay in the M-League for the remainder of the season.
“So, I chose Selangor.
“I hope to form a good understanding with my new teammates ahead of our next match,” he said.
While he is able to play in Malaysia, he has not been recalled to the Lions squad, and missed the Asian Football Federation Mitsubishi Electric Cup at the end of last year.
“To be considered for national team selection, all of our national players should have a clean bill of health or have been cleared by our medical team in the event that they were recovering from a long-term injury,” said the Football Association of Singapore (FAS).
The FAS added that Safuwan will be considered for selection, once he has “satisfactorily cleared the necessary tests as required by our medical team”.
In July 2022, after accepting the advice of several neurosurgeons, Safuwan took an extended break from professional football to recover from a series of concussions he had suffered in 2021 and 2022.
These occurred while he while playing for Selangor.
In June 2022, during a match against Sabah, he took another knock on his head and was later diagnosed with a “mild traumatic brain injury”.
