Selangor new signing Yazan aims to fire up 2022 M-League season Sunday, 16 Jan 2022 08:40 PM MYT PETALING JAYA, Jan 16 — New Selangor signing, Jordanian centre back Yazan Al-Arab aims to fire up the Malaysia League (M-League) and help boost the standard of football here.01- 16- 2022 09:50 AM Manchester City's English midfielder Jack Grealish (R) falls to the ground after a challenge by Chelsea's Spanish defender Cesar Azpilicueta during the English Premier League football match between Manchester City and Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, north west England, on January 15, 2022.Arsenal had asked the league on Friday to delay the derby - the 21st match to be called off this season.The Premier League said it will make a decision on the matter on Saturday.

He said despite the many offers to play in Middle Eastern countries, he still chose to join the Red Giants and viewed it as a personal challenge. “I will work hard not to disappoint the fans and try to repay their trust in me. A game of few chances was brought to life by the Belgian 20 minutes from time as he curled home the only goal from outside the box to seal a 12th consecutive league win for the champions. I also want to change the perception of players over there (the Arab League) about the league in Malaysia. Thomas Partey, Mohamed Elneny, Nicolas Pepe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are on international duty in Africa, while Norwegian Martin Odegaard has tested positive for COVID-19. “Through this experience, I will try to pave the way for those from the Arab League or the Middle East to play here and hope it will improve the quality of football in Malaysia,” he told reporters through an interpreter at the Petaling Jaya City Council Stadium (MBPJ) here today. The Blues remain second but have won just one of their last six league games. The former Al-Wehdat FC player was also confident of adapting to the local football scene quickly, relying on his vast experience playing in the Asian championships such as the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL) and the AFC Cup.

“I won’t have a problem fitting in here as the weather, environment and pitch conditions are all of the same standard and not unfamiliar to me,” he explained. City dominated possession but struggled to open up a makeshift Chelsea defence featuring second-choice goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga and Malang Sarr on just his second Premier League appearance. The centre back earned his first international cap with the Jordan national squad at the age of 21 on Aug 29, 2017 and has played in 24 international matches so far. Meanwhile, his compatriot Baha ‘Abdelrahman, who also joined the Red Giants, is hoping to impress during Selangor’s Super League opening match against champions Kuala Lumpur City (KL) FC on March 3. Mateo Kovacic’s pass deflected off De Bruyne into the path of Jack Grealish, but the most expensive English player of all-time missed the chance to mark his biggest moment yet as a City player as his shot was turned behind by Arrizabalaga. The midfielder, aged 35, is also confident that his age will not stop him from showing off his best skills on the pitch. “At this age, I am quite confident that I can still play because for the past four years I have been playing abroad. The Belgian started for the fourth consecutive game since being dropped for a crucial clash against Liverpool earlier in the month for voicing his unhappiness at Stamford Bridge to Italian media.

In fact, I played in the Gulf Cup where the standard is much higher (than) in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar. “This time around, I decided to come to a different region to a new environment and age is just a number, I am confident I can give a lot to please the Selangor fans,” he said. Chelsea’s title challenge has faltered since losing the threat of wing-backs Ben Chilwell and Reece James to long-term injuries. Earlier, Selangor FC announced the main team’s lineup, which includes Herlison Caion, Samuel Somerville, Fazly Mazlan and Zahril Zabri. — Bernama You May Also Like .
