V. Sundramoorthy's team won the Malaysia Super League and despite their disappointing Malaysia Cup exit, most think the year has gone well for themThe LionsXII's Malaysia Cup campaign ground to a shuddering halt slightly over a week ago when they were thrashed 4-1 by ATM FA in the second leg of their quarter-final clash.
That negated their 1-0 lead from the first leg at home, thus ending their hopes of a Double. But almost three-quarters of Goal Singapore readers polled believe the exit does not distract from a good season.
The majority, 74.6% of them, indicated "yes" when asked whether they were happy with the LionsXII's season, which saw them win the Malaysian Super League in only their second year with only five players over 23. That achievement surprised many, as they were not expected to challenge, with a undefeated record on home soil at Jalan Besar Stadium crucial in their triumph.
With stars like Baihakki Khaizan and Safuwan Baharudin set to leave after the end of their season now and coach V. Sundramoorthy already deciding not to renew his contract, it will be interesting to see how the LionsXII fare next year.
