Chainat Hornbill FC have bolstered their attacking options with the signing of Aussie international Eli Babalj.
The 27 year old forward joins from A League side Brisbane Roar, where he had started the season. Unfortunately for Eli Babalj he was unable to gain a regular place in the starting lineup so was allowed to join Chainat Hornbill FC.
Eli Babalj has spent most of his career playing in the A League with his first spell at Melbourne City FC being the most successful. He has also had numerous spells in Europe, playing for Red Star Belgrade, AZ Alkmaar and FK Mladá Boleslav with limited success.
Chainat Hornbill FC will look to Eli Babalj to add goals to the team. The side are currently one of Thai League’s lowest scorers, having only netted 16 goals or season. Fingers cross that Eli Babalj will become the first prolific goal scorer the club have had since Florent Sinama Pongolle.
