Selangor FC expect to resume training next week

KUALA LUMPUR, June 2 — The Selangor FC squad is expected to return to camp-based training starting next week in preparation for the remainder of the Super League competition this season.

Following the permission from the government and the Malaysian Football League (MFL) for teams to undergo training through a quarantine approach during the first phase of the total lockdown, the Red Giants squad will begin training by staying at a hotel in Shah Alam.

“Right now, it’s okay if we can’t have a friendly match, it’s important that training continues. I am confident that after the lockdown is over, a friendly match can be arranged before the league resumes (next month),” said the club’s chief executive officer Dr Johan Kamal Hamidon in a statement released by MFL yesterday.

After 13 games this season, Selangor FC sit in fifth place with 19 points.

Meanwhile, Johan said his party was also working with the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) to improve the quality of the pitch at the MBPJ Stadium, after playing the first half of the season with subpar field conditions.
