Shan United FC is entering the
play-off competition of 2018 Asian
Football Confederation after winning
the MNL (Myanmar National
League) Max Cement 2017
championship. General Manager
of the club U Khin Maung Tun
said it is now making preparation
for this competition.
“ACL level is slightly higher than Myanmar football (level). But Shan United FC will compete in the best it can. That is why we are now preparing for it. After discussing with the chief coach and technical director, we plan to reinforce the team with local players” he said. “If we are to play again in AFC Cup from ACL, we aim to do something as a team representing the country. Our target is to play in AFC Cup. We want to erase the record of Myanmar team not going past the group stage last year” he added.
According to Myanmar National League Facebook Page, Shan United FC also has a plan to upgrade State Football Stadium in Taunggyi to host the Asian Football Competition. — Kyaw Zin Tun
