Fanats FC’s captain, Ali Reza Hazara, was forced to flee Pakistan in the face of threats received from criminal elements hiding in Karachi.
Ali Reza who originated from Quetta was one of the most talented players of his generation. He captained Fanats FC for 1 year. He also participated in the Inter-Board Championship in 2011 where he led Sindh to a third place finish.
He also led his college team, DA Degree College, through their most successful season and one the best player award in all the tournaments he represented his college. It is with great regret that Fanats FC announces that Ali Reza will no longer be part of the team.
It is a great tragedy that Pakistan has been deprived of such a great footballing talent. Fanats FC will announce a replacement captain soon and has already contacted authorities to help Ali return to the country.
