PETALING JAYA: Striker Kpah Sherman is looking forward to increasing his goal scoring repertoire with his new team Terengganu.
The Liberian international, one of the several foreign signings made by the Turtles for this year’s Malaysian League, said he enjoys the new environment and challenge under coach Nafuzi Zain after serving for two years with Kedah.
The 29-year-old wants to live up to Nafuzi’s brand of football.
“Coach Nafuzi loves possession football, with lots of passing and movements. That’s good because I’ll have more goalscoring chances,” said Sherman.
Sherman will be partnered with Ivorian striker Tchetche Kipre, who has also played with Kedah for two years. The duo will be supported by pacey wingers Faisal Halim and Faiz Nasir.
“I know Tchetche well, so there are no issues in terms of combination and understanding. I believe we can continue our good partnership with the local lads,” said Sherman.
“I hope to be one of the top scorers in the league and help this team do well in all competitions.”
He pointed out that one of Terengganu’s strengths was their team unity.
“The local players have been with the club for a long time and because of that, they have better chemistry and understanding,” he said.
“Every training session has been intense, but off it, the players show great respect for each other – and the right attitude will take us far.”
Last season, Terengganu finished fourth in the Super League and they qualified for the semi-finals in the Malaysia Cup.
