JDT II and T-Team have qualified for the Malaysia Cup after they both won their Malaysia Cup play-off matches against PKNS and Negri Sembilan respectively.

JDT II made it through after a hard-fought win over PKNS, coming through 2-1, while Ramzul Zahini proved to be the hero for T-Team as they beat Negri Sembilan 1-0.

For T-Team head coach, Azrai Khoor, it was mixed emotions for him to see T-Team through to the Malaysia Cup, as his side beat Negri Sembilan, a team he guided to the Malaysia Cup trophy in 2011.

According to The Star, Azraai said “I had an emotional roller-coaster. I am happy with the win, but I am sad because my former team Negri Sembilan (got) knocked out of the competition. Also despite qualifying for the Malaysia Cup, I am still disappointed to be relegated to the Premier League next year.”

T-Team finished 11th in the league, which was not enough for them to survive for another season in the Premier League, and Azraai admitted they will have a tough time in Malaysia Cup as well.

“This is the first time my team relegated and I’ll take full responsibility for this. We are now in Malaysia Cup. We have a small squad and the gap between our regulars and our reserve players are huge, even reaching (the) quarter-finals will be a lot to ask from the team,” he added.

T-Team and JDT II will join JDT, Selangor, Pahang, Terengganu, Sime Darby, Kelantan, Sarawak, Lions XII, Perak, ATM, PDRM, Felda United, Penang and Kedah in the Malaysia Cup.
