New TPL Foreign Signings To Watch Out For.
Muang Thong United
Edivaldo Rojas Hermoza (aka Bolivia.) Bolivian International signed from Portuguese team Navsl FC
Choe Kum-Sol ( North Korea).
Edivaldo’s arrival was slightly overshadowed by talk of Del Piero signing for the Quillins. Talking to MT fans, they feel that this piece of business is the best one for the long term future of the club. So what do we know about Mister Hermoza? He’s a twenty six year old Brazilian – born Bolivian international with eight appearance and one goal (against Argentina no less) under his belt after his first cap in 2011. At five feet eleven he won’t be a target man in the style of Dagno or Kone but it’s a height which, allied to his pace, should ask different questions. He’s only half an inch shorter than Mui and plays in a similar position. The suggestion would seem to be that we are looking at the Scorer’s Apprentice for the rest of the season before Thailand’s finest striker moves abroad to further his career. The similarities don’t end there as they both wear the number 10 shirt. Last season he only missed one game and scored four goals, but the Figueira da Foz outfit was relegated from the top division after six years.
Choe Kum-Sol joins fellow North Korean International (and captain) Ri Kwang Chon at Muang Thong. As you can imagine, getting information from behind the Bamboo Curtain is not so easy. One of Greg Hill’s readers describes the player as, ”very creative, perhaps the most creative and is a good playmaker for DPR Korea on a team that lacks creativity. He has good pace and good technical skills. Was impressive coming off the bench at the World Cup. “He’s a twenty five yearly striker who has played eighteen times for his country, scoring six goals, although a hat trick against Guam in a 9:2 mauling is like taking a wicket against Kenya. He played eight times for his country in the 2010 qualification rounds.
