PETALING JAYA: A trip back home to Liberia is just the right tonic needed for Kedah striker Kpah Sherman (pic) to prepare for the new Super League season.
He was at his hometown in Monrovia for more than a month where he had spent a good time with his family and friends before returning to Alor Setar last week.
With his mind refreshed, Sherman wants to help the Red Eagles challenge for all the titles.
He is also aiming for the Super League golden boot.
“I had missed my family and I’m glad that I met up with them during the pandemic period. It felt good to be at home. It gave me the right boost for my mental health, ” said the 29-year-old.
“Now I can relax my mind and do my job on the field here.
“I want to help the team do well in the Super League, FA Cup, Malaysia Cup, and the AFC Cup. If I have the opportunity to chase for a personal accolade, I will go for it too.”
Sherman said he decided to stay put in Kedah for a reason although several clubs were interested to sign him up.
“I love the unity, harmony and passion in the team. They have also brought reputed foreign players into the team, ” he said.
“We all need to gel well together, and this comes with training and matches. For now, we are doing non-contact training.
He also hopes to strike the right chemistry with Rabih Ataya.
“We will have Rabih to help shore up the attack. We all saw what he did in UiTM, and he has the experience playing in the AFC Cup. I hope we can make things work in attack.
