Pahang's Jalaluddin eager to stamp mark

Jalaluddin Jaafar is known for being a one-club player but the 38-year-old veteran's CV remains incomplete as missing is a Malaysia Cup medal. Pekan-born Jalaluddin, who signed with Pahang in 1997 after guiding their state Malaysia Games team to the football gold medal in the 1996 edition on home soil, is desperate to win the trophy which has eluded him throughout his career.

The closest he has come to lifting the trophy was in 1997 when Pahang, then coached by Dane Jorgen E. Larson, were beaten 1-0 by Selangor.

Now, after 16 years, Jalaluddin, who has played over 400 games for Pahang, is daring to dream big again after helping his team secure a two-goal cushion from the semi-final first leg last week against Sarawak. They play the second leg at the State Stadium in Kuching on Saturday.

  1. Something tells me that Pahang will still make it to the finals despite losing the return leg match.

    The s'wak goalkeeper during the first leg showed inconsistencies in his approach towards certain situations. If the antics by the goalkeeper continuous then they can be assured of getting eliminated.
    The antics shown by the GK gives me the mix feelings, whether it was done intentionally or otherwise - SPRM must watch this closely. The approaches and actions shown by the GK should warrant an investigation, in my opinion.

    By the way, i'm not that interested to watching Malaysian local football. However, i still do it and want to know because of the other elements surrounding it - Match fixing!
