Former forward Safee Sali says Selangor have to work on their defence and midfield to stand a chance of winning Malaysia’s premier competition
Safee Sali believes Selangor need to work harder if they are to realise their dream of winning the Malaysia Cup for the 33rd time in their history.
The 28-year-old striker, who currently plays for Indonesian club Pelita Jaya, said it is the responsibility of each player who wears the shirt of his former team to give their all to ensure The Red Giants take home the cup that has always been synonymous with them.
“I think the defence has to improve and the midfield has to add a bit more steadiness to it. They have a 50-50 chance but from what I’ve seen they have to work harder if they want to win,” he told Utusan Malaysia at a high tea function attended by the Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, yesterday.
The national striker will once more don the red and yellow of Selangor, albeit as a guest player in the annual Sultan of Selangor Cup, against a Singapore eleven at the Shah Alam Stadium on September 29.
