ATM’s talisman and top-scorer last season, Marlon Alex James, has played his last game for the team.
This breaking news was confirmed by the ATM coach, B. Sathianathan, who stated that Marlon will no longer be a part of ATM.
According to Kosmo, Sathia stated that Marlon has informed him that he has given up the game and will no longer play due to injury problems.
Sathia also confirmed that they are seeking a new striker to replace Marlon before the end of the transfer window on the 19th of April.
Marlon played for two clubs in Malaysia, firstly he was in Kedah in 2006 until 2008, where he made 44 appearances and scored 44 goals in the span of two years.
He then left Malaysia to play for the Vancouver Whitecaps before returning to play with ATM. In 54 appearances he scored 47 goals, which saw him win the golden boot award last year.
He also played a crucial part in helping ATM during their Premier League winning season, and was named the most valuable foreign player twice during his time with Kedah.
