All eyes on Akhyar

19-year-old Kedah FA player, Akhyar Rashid, is in top form ahead of the AFF Suzuki Cup 2018.

Aside from representing Kedah in the Super League, Akhyar also played for the national U-19 team at the AFF Cup in Indonesia, the national U-23 team at the AFC Cup in China, at the Asian Games 2018 in Jakarta and made a few senior appearances with the senior squad.

But despite being involved in many competitive matches this season, the Kedah born player said he is not feeling any form of burnout and is eager to prove himself further at the upcoming AFF Suzuki Cup.

“I’ve just started training with the national squad because before this I was given a break following the AFC Championship in Indonesia. I hope I can perform well for the team.

“I do suffer from muscle cramps from time to time but what’s important is I need to take adequate rest and work on my fitness ahead of the AFF Cup,” said the midfielder in a recent interview with Berita Harian.
