Al Montashari crowned Asian player of the year

Not often that it happens but a defender getting the award which the likes of Ali Karimi and Shinji Ono have won in the past.

So what can you tell me about the 23 year old Saudi international? reckon he could perhaps make it in Europe like at Feyenoord perhaps ?

The AFC player of the year award is a joke, but he is a good player. Definitely our best defender (although that's not that hard).
I would like to see him (and any of our best players) in Europe. If you can put a word in to the Feyenoord management ....

I'll do my best. p

Personally I'd have voted for Ji Sung Park but alas the no attendance, no prize rule.

btw concerning Saudi players, why aren't they allowed to play abroad in CM? I mean Al Jaber played for Wolves so I guess it ain't true or was he an exception to the rule and are Saudi players indeed not allowed to play abroad?

Ji Sung Park is by far the best Asian player out there. I was skeptical about him joining Man U, even though i saw him playing for PSV many times. However, after watching him play I must say thats hes the real deal.

Lee is pretty good aswell, there are other guys like Nakamura and Ali Karimi who manages to put in some dazzling displays from time to time. I think the asian football is terribly underrated. The european clubs should invest in some more players from that region. Too many brazilians in Europe

Well teams have taken lots of gambles on Asian players and many of them failed to live up to expectations. However, more Asian players are slowly creeping into Europe. However, to compare them to Brazilians (or even other South Americans) is crazy. For every Asian player in Europe, theres some 200 Brazilians.

I agree, Park is simply superb. I haven't seen Al Montashery enough to be a fair judge of his talents, yet Park would be amongst the top two for me.
