Mpessa moves to third Asian country

Posted: 11 January 2008 Time: 12:03

Asia is becoming a regular home for former Manning Rangers defender Francois Mpessa who recently moved to his third country in the region when he signed for DPMM FC of Brunei.

The Cameroonian, a former international, joined the club following a season in Indonesia with PSMS Medan where his team-mates included Liberians who are familiar to South Africans - defender Murphy Nagbe who had a spell with Durban Stars and James Lomell who used to be with FC AK.

According to DPMM, Mpessa won the Indonesian League’s Best Player award last season.

Although Mpessa’s club is from Brunei it competes in the Malaysian league, which will suit the towering defender well. He is already familiar with the standard of that league because it was his first stop after his solitary season in South Africa where he tasted relegation with Rangers in 2004/5.

Mpessa turned out for Telekom Malaysia and after only one season he went to Indonesia.

Coincidentally, DPMM had earlier during pre-season tested another former Rangers player, Congolese international striker Edson Dico Minga.

Game should be replayed, players cant expect to carry on playing after an hour of sitting around doing nothing, the effects of this physically are not good, never mind mentally.

The ref should have stuck to his decision..

Players were not just sitting around but their lifes were in DANGER due to lack of police and security escourt and unrully characters. They know themselves. I have NEVER in my whole life seen officials so DESPERATE for points like yesterday and I hope that something will be done to these people

Ya, it was a wonderfull performance by uSuthu!!, Hurbert I think in this league everyone is desperate to win, no matter what and that is why Ajax players were playing hide and seek. They realized that, they can't match uSuthu, Well done guys.
