KUALA NERUS, Sept 20 -- The Turtles want to make full use of nine imported players, including four from their 'brother' squad, Terengganu FC ll (TFC ll), to face the Malaysia Cup competition, which will kick off this Saturday.
TFC head coach, Nafuzi Zain said he was a little relieved to have more choice of imported players to suit the tight Malaysia Cup schedule compared to the Super League competition.
However, he said the compatibility factor and the current performance of the players would still be the main criteria for the selection of players for their matches.
“All TFC ll import players are undergoing training with the main squad (TFC), meaning we have nine imports which will definitely give some relief in case of injury problems, (receive) cards and so on.
"But we have to look at the suitability of the players as well because the Malaysia Cup is different from the Super League," he said when met by reporters here today.
TFC are drawn in group B along with Selangor FC, Perak FC and the team that will finish in third place in the Premier League.
Asked which squad would pose the greatest challenge to his team, Nafuzi openly admitted that he needs to be more vigilant with the threat of Selangor FC.
With the reputation as the most successful team in the Malaysia Cup, the Red Giants pattern of play was seen to be even more formidable in the Super League competition.
"The tradition, record and reputation of Selangor FC in the most prestigious competition, the Malaysia Cup, which enters its 100th edition, we cannot deny.
“However I don’t underestimate the challenge from the other two teams in group B as they can pull off surprises at anytime,” he said.
