Irfan praises TFC side

Terengganu (TFC) are set to make their 5th appearance in a Malaysia Cup final after defeating Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) 3-2 on aggregate.

Coach Irfan Bakti was pleased with his side’s resolve in their semi-final victory over JDT and highlighted the contributions of experienced goalkeeper Mohd Suffian Rahman in particular.

“Mohd Suffian was one of the oldest players on the pitch and he was not welcomed by some of the players and supporters, but I have known him for 25 years.

“When goalkeepers reach the age of 35-40, they are more experienced and that is the reason I named him in my starting 11.

“He gave an excellent performance despite making a couple of errors. I’m very pleased with him,” he said in an interview with Sinar Harian.

Despite making five appearances previously, TFC have only won the Cup once and will be looking to make the most out of this opportunity.

Terengganu (TFC) will face Perak in the final of the Malaysia Cup on 27th October 2018.
