Safee Sali is exported to Pelita Jaya FC, Indonesia

Safee Sali, the most talk about footballer in Malaysia or perhaps the whole Asean region is officially joining Pelita Jaya FC, an Indonesian League side. Thought there were rumours saying that Safee is going to join Persib Bandung earlier on. However, it seems Safee decided to choose Pelita Jaya instead which is currently placed at the bottom place of Indonesian League. Pelita Jaya FC which consists mostly younger players with less experience, are struggling to score. It is hoping that with the assistance of Suzuki Cup's golden boot, there will be advancement on their league position. 

My 2 cents worth, I'm 110% on Safee Sali's side on choosing Pelita Jaya to gain more playing times rather than Persib Bandung which already have 2 South American strikers plus the neutralized Cristian Gonzalez. It is such a crucial move for Safee who is already 27 and he does realized that such opportunity of oversea exposure may not come again if he will to miss out on this one. 

Safee Sali, who has constantly been compared to the legendary late Mokthar Dahari scored 3 awesome goals in both legs of Suzuki Cup final against Indonesia. Such performance has landed the golden boy that golden chance of his career. If I have to relate him to a current prominent striker in the football world, it has to be Wayne Rooney. They both are quite similar in size, not naturally gifted in height but well built enough to win most of the body contact with defenders. Of course, the killer instinct in front of goal.

All the best, Safee Sali. Lets create your own legacy and be the legend of the current generation. Good luck !!
