Sidelined Reggae Boy heads for Mexican league

KINGSTON, Jamaica, CMC-Sidelined Reggae Boy, Sean Fraser, is set to play in the Mexican league next season following two impressive seasons in El Salvador’s premier league.

Fraser is expected to sign with secon division club, Pumas Morelos, in Mexico’s Ascenso MX League when the January transfer window opens.

The 28-year-old Jamaican is considered one of the most feared strikers in El Salvador’s Primera Division, playing for his club Alianza.

“It doesn’t get better than Mexico in the CONCACAF region because I don’t have enough caps to play in England. I have gotten offers to play for Coventry City before and I couldn’t take the offer because I wasn’t available to get a work permit because of lack of playing for Jamaica” Fraser explained.

“So I have to look elsewhere where I can ply my trade and so on but for that offer that I have for Mexico I think it’s a better offer than all that I have had so far and it’s a good league. A lot of good players play in Mexico”.

Fraser created history by becoming the first Caribbean player to win the Golden Boot in Central American soccer after finishing as the top scorer in El Salvador premier league with 15 goals last season.

However his prolific goal scoring could not prevent Alienza from losing in the finals in a penalty shoot out.

Fraser’s last game with the reggae boyz was in May when he played ten minutes against Guyana in Montego Bay after being sidelined for three years.

He says he is confused but does not intend to worry over his exclusion from the national setup.

“I don’t know what the problem is because where ever I go I keep performing. I keep scoring goals. I am passed the stage where I worry if Jamaica is going to call me” said the former Harbour View and Portmore United player, who has also plied his trade in North America, Trinidad, Puerto Rico and Brazil.

“Obviously I would love to play for my country…but I am not going to worry about that anymore. I have passed that stage. If they call me I go without a doubt but if they don’t call me what can I do? I just have to stay and play my club football”.

Fraser is scheduled to leave Jamaica tomorrow for Mexico.
