Damion Stewart pledges future to Pahang

Elephants' defender Damion Stewart insisted that he is happy with Pahang and has no intention of leaving the team despite receiving many offers.

Pahang central defender, Damion Stewart, has insisted that he wants to stay with the 2013 Malaysia Cup champions for next season.

The Jamaican was one of the key players who has been performing well and is currently the supporters’ favourite player after a scintillating display against Kelantan in the Malaysia Cup final last week.

According to Sinar Harian, Stewart said: "If I can, I really want to be with Pahang next season because they are a great team and they have the best supporters I have ever seen.

"Yes, I have received a few offers from other teams, but my heart is here with Pahang and I hope I can stay with the team and the fans here.

Stewart, however, admitted that he had to work really hard against Kelantan as the attackers, especially Dickson Nwakaeme, were really dangerous and gave him a hard time.

"I had to work hard and whoever performed better deserved to win," Stewart added.

"Credit must be given to all players in the team who successfully ended the 21-year drought and brought the Malaysia Cup trophy to Pahang."

Stewart, a former Queens Park Rangers player, also thanked the fans for the non-stop support and he also has proved that he is worth buying despite his ripe age of 33.

If he stays with Pahang, he will surely be a key player for them next season.
