Alongside very important player from New Zealand football scenario such as Emiliano Tade and Cameron Howieson, the young Fijian defender Shuiab Khan continues the development of his football in New Zealand; this time playing for Central United in the Lotto NRFL Premier. Shuiab was a regular starter in the superb campaign of Waitakere United in the previous season of the New Zealand top-tier league the ISPS Handa Premiership – Khan and Waitakere finished third in the season that was forced to finish before as scheduled due COVID-19 pandemics.
Now, the Fijian that already reperesented his country in one FIFA U20 World Cup back in 2015, is giving his best to keep Central United in the top of the table of the top-tier league of the Northern Region of New Zealand.
Shuaib Khan is being a consistent choice by the coach Kris Bright in the starting eleven of Central in the season so far. In the last weekened, Khan helped the yellow side to beat 1-0 away from home Birkenhead United as now Central is placed second in the table before winning all their three matches in the league.
The good performances of the 24-year-old player should be attracting the interest of Fiji National Team head coach Flemming Serritslev and the defender can be close to receive their first call-up to the Bula Boys – something that he is certainly deserving.
