Singapore Duo Switch To LPI?

Local reports are suggesting that Persib's Singapore pair, Baihakki Khaizan and Shahril Ishak, could be heading to Medan Chiefs in the rebel Liga Primer Indonesia.

The Chiefs are coached by Jorg Steinbrunner who is familiar to both players after his lengthy spell in Singapore as a player and coach.

Shahril has hardly had a chance to shine since arriving at Persib before the end of the SLeague season while Bai had been benched by new coach Daniel Roekito.

The move could be good for both parties. From what I hear the atmosphere inside Persib, one of the biggest clubs in the country is at times poisonous with little clear direction and accusations of interference.

Bandung is a football crazy city along the lines of Newcastle and it can be very difficult for players to find down time. Medan is likely to be gentler on the nerves and playing under Steinbrunner again could see the duo regain their best form.

The Singapore papers had reported this but without mentioning Jorg is Medan's coach...
