Safiq Rahim wants to achieve more after winning best midfielder award

There's a saying that one reaps what one sows. The old adage, on most occasions, is much easier said than actually done. But if there is one who is seeing all hard work and effort bearing fruit, it has to be Malaysian midfielder Safiq Rahim.
The 24-year-old, who is currently on a training stint with Welsh outfit Cardiff City, has escalated to great heights and established himself as a household name in Asian football over the past year.

Therefore, it is a little wonder and only fitting that the Negri Sembilan-born lad has achieved yet another accolade in recognition to his outstanding performances for both club and country -- the Best Midfielder award during the 100Plus-Astro Arena-FAM National Football Awards on Wednesday.

The award is timely as it will serve as an impetus for Safiq as he strives to continue impressing while under scrutiny at Cardiff.

Safiq was naturally delighted to bag the award and had been revelling in what he said was the highlight of his career, especially over the course of the last 12 months.

"In the end, it's all about hard work and a bit of luck of course. I count myself fortunate because both have blended well for me."

Buoyed and spurred on by his prospective employers, Safiq said a programme had been formulated for him at the club and he was bent on showing that Asians who could make the grade at top-level football were on the rise.
