Ramadhan has one quest – to be Perak’s first choice keeper

PETALING JAYA: Ramadhan Ab Hamid (pic) has one mission – to keep pushing himself to be the first choice goalie for Perak in the new Super League season.

Ramadhan made heads turn after deciding to leave Police, especially after helping the Cops to lift the Challenge Cup last season.

But Ramadhan has his reasons.

He decided he needed a new challenge and moving to Perak was a dream move as the club have won numerous trophies over the years, including the Malaysia Cup eight times.

“Honestly, I didn’t have the slightest thought that I would be with Perak this season. Before Perak, I had already received two more offers but they were discussed over the phone only,” he said.

“It was difficult for me to decide to leave Police, who helped me a lot to be at this level. I hope I can help Perak to go higher.”

Of course, it is not an easy task for Ramadhan to ensure that he can be the main choice of coach Yusri Che Lah as the club also announced two more new goalies.

The Seladang announced the loan signing of Haziq Nadzli from Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) and Firdaus Irman Fadhil from Negri Sembilan.

Ramadhan considers Yusri to be an individual who is particular about player discipline and he needs to continue to perform at his best during training sessions.

“I was under Yusri’s management in the 2018 season but at that time my partnership with Kelantan was only half a season before migrating to Kedah.

“So I think there is no problem for me to work under his guidance. He is a disciplinarian but he is also a coach with a big heart.”
