Harimau Muda A boys, Wan Zaharulnizam and Wan Zack Haikal are settling well in Japan according to FC Ryukyu coach, Takeo Matsuda.

“They are positive to get goals, very good," was FC Ryukyu coach Takeo Matsuda's appraisal of Wan Zaharulnizam and Wan Zack Haikal who are on trial with the Japanese side.

"Not only them, but also for FC Ryukyu, we are getting a stimulus together. I hope that they can enjoy this challenge in Japan.”

Matsuda went on to add: “Sometimes, they are joking with players of FC Ryukyu in broken English. They look like they're becoming familiar."
