Fandi's sons eye Chile after Hercules deal falls through
Move to Spain club Hercules ruled out; Irfan and Ikhsan may play for Barnechea
They have a burning ambition to make the grade as professional footballers but that dream has to wait for Irfan and Ikhsan Fandi, the two older sons of Singapore great Fandi Ahmad.
Fandi told The Sunday Times that the duo's dream move to Hercules, who play in the Spanish second division, is definitely off.
However, there is a silver lining in this disappointing episode, and it could come from South America where the boys are set to sign as youth players for a Chilean club.
Fandi declined to go into details, apart from saying the whole issue with Hercules was "complicated".
