Fallen star Rozaimi Rahman on the verge of renaissance

Former Harimau Muda A star Rozaimi Rahman is close to sealing a move to a Super League side after having his contract terminated by Sabah FA.

The young forward was once rated as the most talented youngster within the country, though a several ankle injury in April 2014, sidelined him for a considerable amount of time.

But in July this year, Rozaimi was involved in a terrible car accident, which ruled him out for the rest of the season. That culminated in Sabah opting not to renew his contract, though it now appears that Rozaimi is set for a new adventure.

“Personally, I’m not surprised with Sabah’s decision and I accept it with an open heart,” he said.

“I admit that I’ve not been able to contribute much to Sabah in recent times. That being said, I’m most likely going to sign for a Super League outfit next year.

“I’m grateful that there are teams who willing to invest in me, despite me being injured for the time being. They are even willing to fund my entire recovery process.

“Right now, I’m just sorting out some procedures and hopefully I’ll be able to sign a contract soon,” he added.

The 23 year-old previously attracted the interest of Thai side BEC Tero Sasana, after netting 10 goals during Malaysia’s AFC U-22 Qualifying campaign back in 2013.


Judging by rumours, Selangor are apparently the team keen on securing his signature. It makes sense, because he was loaned to them for the Malaysia Cup campaign back in  2012, but that being said, there has been no official confirmation from either side. Before his injuries, Rozaimi was a terrific player. But you can’t help but wonder if the injuries have taken anything away from his footballing ability. We’d like to think no, but Falcao and Fernando Torres’ situation does ring some bells. Either way, we’re just happy to see Rozaimi’s recovery process on track.
