It wasn’t an easy situation for me then when I was in Iran.”The Philippine Azkals mainstay played a key role in Ceres Negros’ campaign in the AFC Cup. He also led the squad to its first PFL title with a hat-trick in their 4-1 win over Global Cebu in the finals earlier this month.Filipino-German goalkeeper Muller, meanwhile, has informed the Ceres Negros management of his plan to take a leave of absence to attend to his pregnant wife.“I want to be with my wife and support her pregnancy. This will be my new chapter – priority, family first,” Muller said in a social media post. “Thank you Ceres FC, Bacolod fans and the Philippines for the beautiful memories.”In other developments, Azkals star Misagh Bahadoran has bolted Global Cebu to play for Malaysian team Kelantan, while Bojan Malisic left Davao Aguilas to join the Persib Banduing team in Indonesia./PN[/av_textblock][/av_one_full] [av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=” av-desktop-hide=” av-medium-hide=” av-small-hide=” av-mini-hide=” av-medium-font-size=” av-small-font-size=” av-mini-font-size=”][/av_textblock][av_one_full first min_height=” vertical_alignment=” space=” custom_margin=” margin=’0px’ padding=’0px’ border=” border_color=” radius=’0px’ background_color=” src=” background_position=’top left’ background_repeat=’no-repeat’ animation=”][av_heading heading=’Ceres loses stars Ramsay, Muller ‘ tag=’h3′ style=’blockquote modern-quote’ size=” subheading_active=’subheading_below’ subheading_size=’15’ padding=’10’ color=” custom_font=” av-medium-font-size-title=” av-small-font-size-title=” av-mini-font-size-title=” av-medium-font-size=” av-small-font-size=” av-mini-font-size=” admin_preview_bg=”]BY ADRIAN STEWART CO[/av_heading]last_img
