Protectors get Mendy and Qiu

Home United have cement their title ambition with the capture of duo of Frederic Mendy and Qiu Li.

This has not only strengthen their attacking option as Mendy and Qiu combined for a total of 36 goals last season but weaken their rivals as well with champions Etoile FC losing their top scorer while the Stags will lose their second top-scorer.

It could also proved a formidable pairing as Qiu Li could have been in contention for both the top Scorer and Player of the Year if he had finished this season instead only getting injuried midway through it for that was why the Stags were in contention until then.

As for Frederic Mendy, we all knew what he did as he notched 21 goals including the all-important equaliser and then the winner against Albirex Niigata (S) in the final game of the season to give Etoile FC the championship.

Few teams will be able to stop the pairing on their day.
