Despite the historic landmark of being the S-league first-ever foreign champions, club chairman Johan Goutefangeas has come to out to say the breakup of the team is unavoidable.
All the players who spoke to MediaCorp TODAY acknowledged they did not know if they will remain with the Queentown club and Goutefangeas had effectively put all his players up for sale with his statement.
He said: "It's going to to be hard for me to retain these players. Top teams want to sign them. I will have no choice but to bring in new blood next year. We're not certain about next year, but for now we will have a big party."
It looked like he is willing to let his players depart to clubs like SAFFC, who will be rebuilding, Tampines Rovers, who may be interested as their forward line is aging, Geylang United and Gombak United, who, despite cries of no money, have a bit more than Etoile FC and the current batch of foreigners they have suck.
As for Home, I guess it tough to see them go beyond Korean and that not saying the Korean they have are bad as they are quite good.
