Safuwan good enough for A-League, says ex-Lions star Alistair Edwards

May 11, 2014 - 12:21am



A year ago, Singapore international and LionsXII defender Safuwan Baharudin made known his desire to play in Australia’s A-League.

The 22-year-old might just get what he wished for. Last month, former Malaysia Cup star Alistair Edwards (above) watched Safuwan in action as the LionsXII thumped Pahang, then leaders of the Malaysian Super League (MSL), 4-1 at the Jalan Besar Stadium.

Edwards, 45, had already heard rave reviews of the lanky defender, and, after watching him play for the first time, the former Lions striker understands why great things are being predicted for Safuwan.

The former Socceroo, who coached A-League club Perth Glory in 2012 and 2013, says he wouldn’t hesitate to sign Safuwan if he was in charge of an A-League team.
