KANGAR: Perak striker S. Mugenthiran will be looking for redemption when his side take on Federal Territories (FT) in the quarter-finals of the Sukma football competition at the UiTM field on Friday.
Perak were docked one point by the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) in April for fielding him in a match before the compulsory 48-hour cooling period.
Mugen played in Perak’s 4-0 win over Kuala Lumpur in a President’s Cup match on March 20 and was then fielded by the senior side in a Super League match against T-Team, where he scored in the 1-1 draw, on March 22.
The 21-year-old was also a key player in the highly-rated Perak team who lost 3-0 to Sabah in the Pahang Sukma final in 2012.
The Ipoh-born player said he owes it to his team to play well and guide them to the gold medal this year.
“The goal against T-Team was my first Super League goal but it was cancelled out and the team were docked points because of me. I was devastated by FAM’s decision,” said Mugen.
“We were the 2012 President’s Cup winners but we ended up losing to Sabah in the final ... it was a disappointing experience for me. I badly want to make it right for my state in this Sukma by winning the gold medal.
“I’m among the senior players in the current Sukma squad and I have a lot of stepping up to do. I have only scored once here and I hope to be much more clinical in front of goal.”
