Hariss leads JDT's dominance in the MSL2019 team of the season

04:02 EAT 25/07/2019
Johor Darul Ta'zim v Selangor, Malaysia Super League, 19 Jun 2019
As expected, a glut of of players from 6-time champions Johor Darul Ta'zim made the cut to the Team of the Season but who else joins them?

  • Farizal Marlias, Selangor v Johor Darul Ta'zim, Super League, 1 Mar 2019

    Farizal Marlias (Johor Darul Ta'zim)

    A shoe-in for the goalkeeper position, Farizal has been undoubtedly the best custodian between the sticks in the Super League this season. Helped JDT to be the meanest defence in the division enroute to winning their sixth straight league title, Farizal has been excellent at the back. A commanding presence inside the box, despite often having very little to do, still manages to come up with the goods when called upon.
  • Matthew Davies, Pahang, Malaysia Super League, 24022019

    Matthew Davies (Pahang)

    Ever dependable and ever solid, Davies had another consistent season at right back for Pahang. The captain of the team, he was ever-present in the team that finished runners-up in the league behind JDT. Has an almost telepathic understanding with Mohamadou Sumareh who usually plays in front of him, Davies has this year improved in his forward runs as well as his deliveries from wide position which has created a fair few goals for The Elephants.
  • La'Vere Corbin-Ong, Johor Darul Ta'zim v Gyeongnam, AFC Champions League

    La'Vere Corbin-Ong (Johor Darul Ta'zim)

    Finally made his international bow for Malaysia this year, Corbin-Ong's exploits at left back for JDT could no longer be ignored by the national team set-up. His long throws made him recognisable last season but the Corbin's performance has been an assuring one for JDT in defence. Quick and agile, he's hardly ever beaten for pace and his knack of joining up the attack often give JDT an attacking outlet on the left hand side.
  • Mauricio dos Santos, Terengganu FC v Johor Darul Ta'zim, Malaysia Super League

    Mauricio dos Santos (Johor Darul Ta'zim)

    It was the unenviable task of replacing a club icon in Marcos Antonio but JDT did so well in finding Mauricio that the former was not missed during this campaign. Slotted in effortlessly, Mauricio's expansive European experience helped him plenty as he had to lead a defence that sometimes consisted of Adam Nor Azlin and other times Aidil Zafuan. Strong and combative, the centre back is a real physical edge for JDT in defence.
  • Herold Goulon, Pahang v Felda United, Malaysia Super League

    Herold Goulon (Pahang)

    The former Blackburn Rovers defender saw his name gone viral this season for a wonder goal in a different competition but he also had a season to remember in the Super League. Part of the defence that were the second best in the division, Goulon quickly strike up a working partnership with Muslim Ahmad. An able defender, his toweing height also made him a major threat in opposition penalty boxes and he has 8 league goals to show for it.
  • Hariss Harun, Melaka v Johor Darul Ta'zim, Malaysia Super League, 25 June 2019

    Hariss Harun (Johor Darul Ta'zim)

    The captain and heartbeat of champions JDT, Hariss can rightfully claim this season to be one of his finest ever with The Southern Tigers. A remarkable reader of the game, Hariss has the knack to be at the right place at the right time to foil opponent's attack without needing to make crunching tackles. Possessing an eye for a pass, Hariss is often the first instigator of JDT's attacks with precise passing from deep.
  • Lee Tuck, Terengganu v Johor Darul Ta'zim, Super League, 15 Feb 2019

    Lee Tuck (Terengganu FC)

    If the rumours are to be believed, Lee Tuck will be the next heritage player to don the Malaysia colours and why not. While TFC have not performed to the level expected of them this season, Lee Tuck has been shining like a beacon for the east coast side. With eight assists to his name this season, he is the one TFC relied upon to be the chief creator from central midfield. Haven't found many goals this season but if anything, his free kick goal against JDT proved that he can also contribute in other areas of the game.
  • Safawi Rasid, Johor Darul Ta'zim v Selangor, Malaysia Super League, 19 Jun 2019

    Safawi Rasid (Johor Darul Ta'zim)

    The first Malaysian to score in the group stage of the AFC Champions League, Safawi's impact in the Super League can also be viewed by just how clinical he has been in front of goal. The highest scoring local player this season with eight goals, Safawi has taken his game up a game compared to last season. The left footer has added more variety to his game and that makes him an even deadlier forward.
  • Gonzalo Cabrera, Johor Darul Ta'zim v Pahang, Malaysia Super League, 14 May 2019

    Gonzalo Cabrera (Johor Darul Ta'zim)

    Into his third season now with JDT, Cabrera is one of the more treasured player in their ranks. Nominally operating out wide left, Cabrera has the tendency to cut inside and pop up in dangerous areas in the final third of the pitch. Contributing with 11 goals in the league this season, only three other players had a better goalscoring season than him and all of them are out-and-out strikers. Cabrera's is the kind of thinking player every coach dream about and his goal in the Charity Cup against Perak was a thing of a beauty.
  • Kpah Sherman, Johor Darul Ta'zim v PKNS FC, Malaysia FA Cup, 17 Apr 2019

    Kpah Sherman (PKNS FC)

    The Super League Golden Boot winner for the 2019 season, Sherman showed just why he's one of the hottest player in Malaysia at the moment. Effortlessly transitioning his goalscoring impact from the Premier League to the Super League, Sherman is one of the bright spots in an otherwise disappointing season for PKNS. Incredibly speedy, Sherman often plays close to the last defender and when given a chance, more often than not finds the back of the net.
  • Diogo Luis Santo, Johor Darul Ta'zim v Gyeongnam, AFC Champions League, 12 Mar 2019

    Diogo Luis Santo (Johor Darul Ta'zim)

    The most expensive signing ever made by a Malaysian club and after an entire league season, JDT were justified in going all-out to sign him from Buriram United. Deceptively quick, Diogo is the striker of dreams. Tall and strong but his strongest suit is his ability to judge a situation in an instant and make the right decision what to do with his runs or with the ball. 12 goals scored for his new club in his first ever season in M-League showed how well he has fitted in.
  • Honourable mentions
