Cambodia international Thierry Chantha Bin is excited at the newest chapter of his career after signing for Malaysia Super League outfit Terengganu.
The midfielder’s move to Terengganu from Thai side Krabi was confirmed on Tuesday, as he fills the club’s ASEAN import spot and becomes the first Cambodian to ply his trade in Malaysia.
Having sealed promotion to the Super League this past season, the Turtles’ primary objective will be to secure their top-flight status and the challenge of the next 12 months is something Thierry is looking forward to.
“I’m super excited for this new challenge in a new country,” he told FOX Sports Asia in an exclusive interview.
“I will approach this with the same mentality as I always have, which is to just work hard. This is the only thing that pays off.
“The Malaysia league is a strong league so I want to learn as much as I can from it, as well as Malaysian football as a whole.
“For now, I’m just happy and I will fight for my place.”
Thierry was unveiled alongside South Korean forward Kim Hyun-woo, who was his former team-mate at Phnom Penh Crown and netted four goals in the Malaysia Premier League for PKNP FC this year.
The two of them join Ivorian forward Kipre Tchetche, English midfielder Lee Tuck and Montenegrin defender Igor Zonjic as Terengganu’s five imports for 2018.
