Frank Seator

I haven't done much about individual players and the main reason for that is their names are so damned long but watching Sriwijaya I was struck by the performance of Liberian Frank Seator, formerly of Jakarta. So I did some research and came up with this...

November 12, 2002 Siebo D. WilliamsMonrovia One of Liberia's leading professional players, Frank "Jaen" Seator, has dispelled rumors that he and his family were expelled from Qatar because of dress code. Making the clarification in a telephone conversation with our Sports Desk recently, player Seator said he was disappointed to have heard that there was a newspaper article indicating that he and his family were expelled from Qatar. "The paper carried the article without contacting me while in the country." He said for five years, he and his family lived in Qatar without any problem. He disclosed that after his contract with Al Ta-awon ended, his manager told him there was a another contract in the making for him in another country. "That is why I was in Liberia awaiting on my manager for signal before I could leave the country." Commenting further in a serious mood, player Seator frowned on the paper for such an article aimed at tarnishing he and his family reputation. Meanwhile, Seator has called on the paper to retract the article to avoid any confrontation. "I respect the media in Liberia because they have played a key role in promoting my career. I don't want any problem between they and myself because we need each other." In another development, player Seator has disclosed that he is presently in Italy justifying his inclusion on Serie B side Regianna. Regianna was in the Serie A recently before being relegated. Several African players including Nigeria's Sunday Oliseh and Sierra Leone's Mohammed Kallon have played for the club before. According to player Seator, if all goes well he will join the club at mid season. But he was quick to point out that he could be loaned to North Africa, specifically Esperence of Tunisia, where he will play for some time before returning to Italy. Seator was invited to play for the National football team, the Lone Star, for the African Cup of Nations qualifying match against Guinea in September. After the match he was not called for the match against Niger for what the coaches termed "lack of form". The player stayed in Liberia for some time before going to Italy based on arrangement concluded by his Manager. Seator has been playing professional since 1995 beginning from Kuwait. He also played in Saudi Arabia, Hungary and Sweden. Seator was part of the Lone Star squad that participated in the 2002 African Nations Cup finals held in Mali.

Seator signs for Esperance

Seator in action at the 2002 Nations Cup Liberian striker Frank Seator's trial with Tunisian giants Esperance has been turned into a season's loan.
Seator said he was initially unaware that the deal had been confirmed.
"I was surprised when my agent Zarrouk Abdellatif called me to say the move was complete.
"He decided that after some great years in the Gulf, playing for the Tunisian's would enable me to develop my talent so I might get into a European club".
Seator, who was in Liberia's squad at the Nations Cup in Mali, has spent five years in the Middle East, playing for teams in Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
"The Gulf might be luxurious, but if you look at Europe now there are hardly any Liberians there - only Prince Daye," the striker said.
"This is not normal - so I've decided to come to Tunisia where European scouts are frequently present.
"It's a lucrative contract, and I hope to live up the fabulous image that George Weah has set in Liberian football."
Seator, is expected to make his debut on 14 December, and is hoping to have a chance to play in continental competition.

IPOH:01/ 21/ 2004 Argentine midfielder Ricardo Silva and Liberian striker Frank Seator are fast proving to be a lethal combination for Perak as they prepare for next month’s Super League.
Both new buy Silva and last season's hero Seator have been on target in the team's ongoing playing tour of Perth, Australia, sharing between them the five goals the team have scored in their two friendly matches so far.
In their first outing against Cockburn City Soccer Club last Friday, the 26-year-old Silva, who played for Spanish Div 2 Badasooz in the 1999 - 2000 season, was on target once while Seator scored a brace. The two teams drew 3-3.

SEATOR: The Liberian is playing very well in the on-going tour of Perth.On Monday, Silva, a product of River Plate, found the net again in Perak’s 2-1 victory over Sterling Lion’s SC.
Not to be left out, Seator, whose contract was extended after an impressive showing last year, was the other scorer for Perak.
Perak assistant coach Mohamed Zakaria Mohamed said Silva had been impressive with his feedings and skill.
“Silva was easily the man of the match against Sterling Lion’s SC. He created several scoring chances and also displayed good touches.
“He and Seator are certainly proving to be a deadly pair for Perak. Team officials are hoping the duo can maintain this combination in the Super League,” added Zakaria in a telephone interview yesterday.
Zakaria said locals K. Nanthankumar and Liew Kit Kong, who joined the team on their tour on Monday also played the full game against Sterling Lion's SC.
“I have no complaints about the two's performance considering that they only joined us on Monday after their training stint with the national team.”
The duo, together with V. Saravanan were training with the national team who are preparing for the World Cup qualifiers.
Perak's next match is against Armandale FC today.
Meanwhile, goalkeeper Tay Sin Kiat and leftback Chan Wing Hoong will cut short their trip in Perth and return today to celebrate the Chinese New Year festival with their families.

And in Indonesia he has played for Jakarta and of course now he is with Sriwijaya. Bit of a globetrotter our Frank...
