Terengganu out to win back Malaysia Cup after 10 year wait

FA Cup winners Terengganu hope to end a 10-year wait to make the Malaysia Cup final when the competition kicks off on Sept 6.

Terengganu, drawn in Group B together with Sime Darby FC, PKNS and former champions Negri Sembilan.

Terengganu will, however, have an uphill task against Negri who won the Cup two seasons ago.

Head coach Irfan Bakti who guided the team to a memorable FA Cup win over Super League champion Kelantan has reminded his players to not underestimate the opposition, especially teams like Sime Darby and PKNS.

“We have to make a winning start to ensure we top the group.

“But I have continuously reminded my players against being over confident or underestimating the capability of others,” said Irfan yesterday.

“I feel this year is the best opportunity for Terengganu to win the Malaysia Cup because we have seven players in the team who were picked to play for the national team.

“Their contribution will be valuable.”

Terengganu last won the Malaysia Cup 10 years ago.
