Selangor striker not happy with performance despite scoring

Selangor striker Fadzli Saari is far from happy with his performance despite scoring both the goals in his team’s win over Police in their Malaysia Cup Group D match on Saturday.

The lanky striker, playing with a toothache, was jeered by the home crowd for his languid style in the win over Police at the Shah Alam Stadium.

The win revived the Red Giants’ Malaysia Cup hopes after their shock 1-0 loss to T-Team in the opening match last Tuesday.

Selangor are now tied with T-Team in second spot in Group D with three points. KL, their opponents today, lead with with six points.

Fadzli is taking the abuse in his stride, saying it’s normal for supporters to take out their frustrations on their own players.

“We are performing below par and still struggling to find our rhythm in the Malaysia Cup,” said Fadzli.

“The coach has been trying out several tactical changes to fill the void left by Mohd Safee Sali’s departure and we are trying very hard to win our matches.

“It’s normal for fans to jeer their own players ... for me it’s part and parcel of the game and I’m not too bothered about it.”

Fadzli is hoping to continue with his scoring ways when Selangor and Kuala Lumpur clash in the Klang Valley derby at the Selayang Municipal Council Stadium today.

Kuala Lumpur have been a revelation in the Malaysia Cup, having collected full points from their two matches despite not having any big names in the team.

The Kuala Lipis-born, who only scored six times in the Super League this season, hopes to play a bigger role in the Malaysia Cup.
