SHAH ALAM: Pahang skipper Razman Roslan insists that they will not be burdened by the favourites’ tag ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup final against Felda United at the Shah Alam Stadium.
Pahang are chasing their second trophy in as many years after lifting the Malaysia Cup – for the first time in 21 years – seven months ago.
But the 29-year-old Razman, who will be making his fourth FA Cup final appearance, believes there is no reason for The Elephants to feel pressured or be overconfident despite facing an opponent from the second tier.
“I believe we are prepared ... mentally and physically,” said Razman, who forms a steady partnership with Damion Stewart at the heart of defence.
“We will play in the final tomorrow (today) without any pressure. Everyone knows the importance of the game and none of us will take it easy.
“We must stay focused for the whole 90 minutes ... and beyond.
“Having played in the Malaysia Cup final last year, we are more experienced and know how it feels like to play in a major Cup final.”
