Mintah ready to step up and help Terengganu lift the Cup

PETALING JAYA: Striker Jordan Mintah hopes to play his part to end Terengganu’s 20-year agonising wait for the Malaysia Cup.

Terengganu last won the Cup in 2001 and they came close in 2018, too, but lost to Perak in the final.

Their coach Nafuzi Zain was a member of the winning team and together with several others like Rosdi Talib (leftback), Sapian Wahid (winger) and Zubir Ibrahim (goalkeeper), they became household names.

The Ghanian is inspired to join the league of the elite players, who have tasted success before.

“I’m beginning to learn the history of the Cup and how Terengganu won it before and who were behind it,” said the 26-year-old.

“I’ll will do my part to help the team realise this dream.

“I feel much more spirited to give my best, especially for the fans.”

Mintah was roped into the squad, thanks to his exploits in the Premier League, where he scored 16 goals for the feeder side Terengganu II.

“Coach Nafuzi believes in me, and I want to repay his faith. I will go all out to get the goals.”

Terengganu have started well in Group B by beating Kuching City (2-0) and Selangor (2-1).

They will resume their campaign when they play Perak at the Perak Stadium in Ipoh on Oct 30 and will be banking on Mintah to continue with his goal scoring act.
