K-Electric's disbandment gives misery to former footballers like ex-captain Akbar Ali
Pakistan Premier Football League (PPFL) champions K-Electric (KE) will become the first club from the country to feature an English Premier League youth product when they head to Bangladesh for the Sheikh Kamal International Club Cup.
The ongoing problems at the Pakistan Football Federation mean that the national team may not be competing in international tournaments any time soon but national champions K-Electric (KE) will be representing the country at the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Cup qualifiers in Bhutan from August 9.
K-Electric’s newly-hired England-based coach Majid Shafiq and players Irfan Khan and Shani Abbasi reached Karachi on Friday to join the camp which will begin here at the Steel Mills ground on Saturday.
Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) and former champions Khan Research Laboratories (KRL) qualified for the semi-finals when they defeated K-Electric and National Bank of Pakistan (NBP), respectively, in the quarter-finals of Football Challenge Cup at Lahore on Thursday.
