Last Update: 18/08/2019

KUALA TERENGGANU, Aug 18 (Bernama) -- Terengganu FC (TFC) have dedicated their 3-1 victory against Negeri Sembilan in their Malaysia Cup Group A match last night to their late first choice goalkeeper Mohd Suffian Abd Rahman.

TFC  interim coach Nafuzi Zain said the team’s players and officials were deeply saddened that their most senior player died of a heart attack at 1.10 pm yesterday.

He said that  the players were shaken to hear the sad news just hours before they were to play Negeri Sembilan.

"Although it was emotionally tough on them, they played their hearts out to get a victory so as to dedicate it to him.

“ I hope they will go on to win  the Malaysia Cup for Mohd Suffian,” he told  reporters after the match at the Sultan Ismail Nasiruddin Shah Stadium here.

The 8,000-odd fans who turned up also observed a minute of silence as a mark of respect for Mohd Suffian.

The former national goalkeeper died at his home in Kampung Bukit Tunggal, near Kuala Terengganu.  He was just 41.

Meanwhile, Negeri Sembilan assistant coach Mohd Shafiq Jonny Abdullah said that despite this being their third straight defeat after having lost to Kedah and PKNS, he was still optimistic that The Deer would make it to the quarter finals.
