Evan Dimas already has experience playing in 2018 competitions in Malaysia.
Unlike Indonesia, Malaysia’s competition can already be expanded and is preparing for the 2021 season. The clubs participating in Malaysia’s major caste competition, Malaysia Super League, have started looking for new ammunition.
Indonesian players have become an extraordinary magnet for Malaysian clubs, especially as the Indonesian League is at a standstill, and is expected to open in February 2021, which is also just a plan.
Evan Dimas is one of the target players for the club in the surrounding country. This was reported by Sabri Abas as COO of Terengganu. Evan deserves to fill the gap of foreign players in the Southeast Asian category.
“In fact, we are targeting ASEAN players because we have to meet the quota set by the Malaysian Football Association [FAM], “Said Abas reported Daily news.

Unfortunately, Terengganu did not find it easy to introduce Evan, as the official label of the player equal to the number six jersey is quite high. Although, in truth, Evan’s quality is considered to be quite concrete in the Malaysian competition.
“But because of the price offered to that player [Evan Dimas] not in capacity, we didn’t want to take on Indonesian players, ”Abas said.
“To meet ASEAN’s quota, we will try to find other players based on our ability to avoid financial problems in our team later on,” Abas said.
Terengganu is serious enough to look at the 2021 season as he finished third in the final standings in the 2020 season with 19 points, or a ten-point lead over Malaysian giants Johor Darul Takzim.
Thanks to this position, Terengganu appeared in the AFC Cup and are looking for the best players for a better 2021 season. This is why Evan is a realistic goal to fill the gap for the situation of foreign players in Southeast Asia.
The reason is that Evan is no stranger to competing in Malaysia. In 2018, Evan tasted the Malaysia Super League with Selangor FA. He was not alone at the time, along with Ilham Udin Armaiyn, who both helped Bhayangkara FC win the 2017 Ligue 1.
In fact, it is not Evan who has attracted the interest of Malaysian clubs. Hansamu Yama, who is currently defending Persebaya Surabaya, is also quite attractive to the surrounding clubs because he knows how Indonesia’s competition is in full swing.
“There are several teams that are interested, but it’s not worth it yet. So we want to see which team we want to decide the best,” said Malaysian agent Faidauz Azhar. “If the offer is right, they are interested in playing in the Malaysian League.”
