What’s up with Bobby Gonzales?


KUCHING: The future of Sarawak’s top scorer for the season Bobby Gonzales remains unclear.

The striker last talked to The Borneo Post on Monday when he revealed he had yet to receive any offer of a contract renewal from the Football Association of Sarawak (FAS).

“My heart is with Sarawak and I am keen to stay here at the Stadium Negeri. Personally I think it would be nice to remain here,” he said.

There is no lack of rumours in the media.

PDRM have been reported to be interested in his services but Bobby denied he had been approached by any team.

There is also speculation that Sarawak is considering an Australian import striker.

Bobby scored 21 goals in 22 appearances for Sarawak this season. He remains a firm favourite among local fans with his knack for scoring important goals for the Crocs.

He knocked in the solitary goal in Sarawak’s vital 1-0 home win against Sime Darby in the Premier League.

With the win, Sarawak reached the top spot in the league table and never surrendered the lead for the rest of the season.

Bobby is currently on his second stint with Sarawak.

He first played for the Crocs in 2011, on loan from his hometown side Sabah, when he made 21 appearances for Sarawak and scored 16 goals.

He returned to Sabah in the following year but made another move to Stadium Negeri in 2013.

Apart from the Sabah and Sarawak, he had also played for KL Plus FC and Brunei DPMM FC in the past.
