ATM and national team left-back K.Reuben is hoping that he can soon recover from his injury so that he can get back into action and return into the national team setup.

Reuben, who tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee back in February, is targeting to be back by the middle of the Malaysia Cup. He has admitted that he wants to quickly get back playing to earn a place in the national squad for the AFF Suzuki Cup this November.

According to Astro Arena, Reuben said “I know the coach (can) only choose the best players for the tournament, so that is why I need to recover quickly so that I will have a chance to play for AFF Cup later.”

Reuben also stated that he is currently receiving treatment at the National Sports Institute (ISN) after undergoing surgery on his left knee.

Meanwhile, he is also confident that Malaysia can advance from the group stage of the upcoming AFF Suzuki Cup.

“A lot of people are saying that our group is the “group of death” but for me, we still have a chance to go through to the next round. But we must focus on the games in the group stage first before we think about the next round,” added Reuben.

For the upcoming AFF Suzuki Cup in Singapore in Vietnam, Malaysia have been placed in the same group as current holders Singapore, three-times winners Thailand and the winner of the qualifying round.
