Double blow for Sabina

Bangladesh women’s football team captain Sabina Khatun has been left frustrated after being refused a visa for Chinese Taipei for a stint in the women’s football league there. The Bangladesh skipper, who previously played in women’s football leagues in Maldives and India, was supposed to play in the Taipei Women’s Premier League for the Hang Yuen FC.

“The league has already gotten underway. I, along with another foreign player, were refused work permits by Chinese Taipei despite efforts from the club,” Sabina told The Daily Star yesterday.

The refusal is a double blow for Sabina, who had rejected an offer from her former club, Sethu FC in he Indian league where she starred last year, to make herself available for the Taipei club.

“Sethu FC filled their foreign quota with Nepalese footballers. So there is no chance of me playing in the Indian league,” said the 24-year-old.
