I’ll stay if coach Nafuzi stays, Faisal Halim tells TFC
The nippy winger has already received four offers from other teams
KUALA NERUS – Nippy Terengganu FC (TFC) winger Faisal Halim, who is being courted by four other teams, has stressed that he will only stay on with the east coast club if they retain the services of head coach Nafuzi Zain next season.
This, the winger said, was due to several factors, including compatibility and Nafuzi’s guidance in his football career thus far.
According to the 24-year-old, he has received offers from clubs including Selangor FC for next season. “100% I will stay with TFC if coach Nafuzi remains. My decision is clear because he (Nafuzi) and assistant manager Zulfadzli Rozi brought me here.
‘I am comfortable with them. If they are no longer here, it will be better for me to seek new experience with a new coach and club,” he said when met here today.
Despite his disappointment with the TFC management for dilly-dallying on the head coach’s status, Faisal said he is still focused on guiding the Turtles to reach the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Cup next season.
In fact, the Penang-born Faisal is determined to inspire TFC to the Malaysia Cup final as a parting gift for the fans should he leave the team next season.
“I am determined to take TFC to the AFC Cup next season. If it’s not meant for me to play for Terengganu after that, I will consider it my biggest contribution as a player. “I am not going to move to another team for a bigger salary, but the (TFC) management knows better,” he said.
