The Tampines Rovers youngsters have known each other for a long time, so we decided to sit them down to test each other’s knowledge about the other
Iman Hakim ended the 2020 campaign by lifting the Singapore Premier League trophy following a very successful season with Albirex Niigata.
Marc Ryan Tan on the other hand endured a tough campaign with Young Lions as they had to settle for seventh spot in the eight-team Singaporean top flight.
Contrasting fortunes, to say the least, for two promising youngsters who have known each other for a very long time.
In 2021, things will be markedly different for the two, however, as they will both be lining up for Tampines Rovers in the new season.
There’s little doubt that an exciting season awaits for Iman and Marc Ryan, with the duo in line to make their AFC Champions League debut, on top of a tough battle for the SPL title, with reigning champions Albirex and ambitious Lion City Sailors likely to pose a stern test.
The calendar year might then end on a high with participation at either the AFF Suzuki Cup or the SEA Games, depending on whether they manage to impress at their new club.
We sat down with the gifted youngsters to see how well they know each other and put their friendship to the test.
