Goal.com's Malaysian Super League Team of the Week Round 9

The Goal.com team picks the best XI from the latest round of Malaysian Super League matches
Malaysian Super League Team of the Week

Formation: 3-4-3

Goalkeeper - Sharbinee Allawee

Terengganu FA

The Terengganu goalkeeper was on fine form against Kuala Lumpur last weekend. While KL are perhaps a struggling side, they showed great determination with Zakaria Charara leading their charge in midfield. However, Sharbinee performed admirably to keep a clean sheet and the Turtles ran out comfortable 1-0 winners.

Defender - Obinna Nwaneri

Kelantan FA

Facing up against the towering Jean Emmanuel Effa Owona was always going to be a tough task but Obinna Nwaneri was magnificent during the weekend. He restricted Effa Owona to several scrappy attemps and while Ahmad Shakir Ali did score the equalizer, Obinna was rock-solid in defence as Kelantan clinched a valuable 2-1 victory over the Charity Shield winners.

Defender - Muslim Ahmad

Terengganu FA

In what has been a terrific season for Terengganu so far, Muslim Ahmad has been an integral part of it. Again, he proved his worth in their tight 1-0 victory over Kuala Lumpur last weekend, where Lebanese midfielder Zakaria Charara threatened to run rampant for Kuala Lumpur. However, Muslim held his line well and managed to keep the Terengganu defence tight for a well-deserved victory.

Defender - Helmi Rameli


Joining in from Terengganu, Helmi Rameli has been an absolute revelation for PKNS FC. Having netted three goals this season, the versatile defender extended his tally by netting in their 2-2 draw against Perak. Many would regard the draw as being pretty unfair because PKNS were evidently the dominant side and Helmi played a significant role in it.

Right midfield - Faiz Subri

T-Team FC

K. Rajagopal will now be alert of Faiz Zubri's name because the former Perlis winger was terrific against a revitalized Sarawak. T-Team were always going to have a hard time facing the revived Crocs, but Faiz was decisive in the end, netting the winner as T-Team sealed the victory to keep up with the front runners.

Centre midfield - Safi Abdelfatah

Kedah FA

It's been a rather topsy-turvy season for Kedah so far but their fortunes have improved of late. While the return of Wan Jamak Wan Hassan was much needed, the arrival of Safi Abdelfatah has been a breath of fresh air. Safi has been amazing in midfield alongside Baddrol Bakthiar and he was crucial again during the weekend, scoring the winning goal against Selangor.

Centre midfield- S. Chanturu

Kelantan FA

Chanturu has not had the most convincing of seasons yet but his role in Kelantan was reaffirmed during the weekend. The hardworking midfielder scored a last gasp strike in their 2-1 win over Negeri Sembilan. Chances have been pretty limited for him this season but with performances like that, expect Chanturu to play a big part for the Red Warriors this year.

Left Midfield - Shahrudin Yakup

Sabah FA

It's been an encouraging period for Shahrudin Yakup, who has grown in stature recently. Impressing for Sabah in February, the winger earned a national team call-up for the first time. Last weekend, he continued his impressive run of form by scoring in Sabah's 2-1 win over Johor FC

Striker- Sufian Anuar


The hardworking forward finally registered himself on the scoresheet for the LionsXII against Felda United. After setting up numerous assists for his team-mates, Sufian managed to opportunistically deflect into goal Shahdan Sulaiman's shot from close range. Apart from his goal, the former goalkeeper was his usual tenacious self upfront.

Striker - Francis Forkey Doe

Terengganu FA

Started his tenure magnificently but had a slight dip in form last month. However, he came back with a bang last weekend, netting the winning goal in a tough match against Kuala Lumpur. Francis Forkey's presence was absolutely menacing upfront and Kuala Lumpur ultimately failed to deal with him properly.

Striker - Arturo Henrique

Johor FC

Early on in the seaosn when Johor FC's two foreign signings were rejected by FAM, it must have been delicate for K. Devan. However, the Pasir Gudang outfit took advantage of the registration date extension by snapping up Brazilian forward Arturo Henrique, who has been brilliant so far. Despite their defeat against Sabah last weekend, Henrique continued his brilliant form by scoring Johor FC's solitary goal in that game.
