Phnom Penh Crown midfielder Va Sokthorn has pointed out that playing in front of the supporters who put on the club’s jersey can make the team stronger. The Red Lions have just unveiled their 2019 season kits with the red jersey used for every home match at the SMART RSN Stadium, while the green one is for the away match. Va Sokthorn, who modelled the new home kit for this season, is proud to pull on the jersey of Phnom Penh Crown that he reckons as the most popular club with the most league trophies in Cambodia.

Va Sokthorn told “It is a big pride to wear the shirt of the most popular club and especially the club with the most league trophies in the country. “With this new nice jersey, we will look good at the exit of the locker room, and any player appreciates that. “All players, who spend a day at Phnom Penh Crown, have a special feeling and will always have attachment to this club because this club makes us proud.”

The 31-year-old midfielder has also called on Phnom Penh Crown’s supporters to wear the club’s new jersey to support the team as it can give the team more confidence and strength. “They [supporters] should buy and wear it in every game to show their love for the club and give a good image to other fans who love Cambodian football and those who don’t really support one team,” he added. “The supporters should try to bring the jersey to support our club and also to make the team stronger. “One more thing, as a player when I see most of the fans wear our jersey in the stadium, it makes me feel more confident and stronger to win the games.”

Phnom Penh Crown will take on Bati Youth this weekend as they look to bounce back from a disappointing 3-2 defeat to Boeung Ket in the Metfone Cambodian League opener few weeks ago.
