KUALA LUMPUR: After three seasons of mixing with the big boys, Felda United are bracing for life in the Premier League this season.
But just because they are no longer in the company of the elite doesn’t mean they are going to lower their expectations.
In fact, Felda United head of sports Datuk Ahmad Fuad has told his men to get their hands on at least one trophy this season.
His optimism has been further boosted by the signing of three foreign players – Uzbek Yaroslav Krushelnitskiy and Liberians Edward Junior Wilson and Zah Rahan Krangar – and the arrival of veteran forward Indra Putra Mahayuddin from Kelantan.
Fuad is also confident that with former Selangor coach Irfan Bakti at the helm, Felda will be able to earn promotion to the Super League come end of the season.
“We had our ups and downs last season in the Super League. However, we are confident that our fortunes will change for the better this season,” Fuad said after the unveiling their new kit for the new season, which begins next week.
Felda have signed a three-year sponsorship deal with sportswear giants Puma.
