“I want to play abroad before I retire” – Faiz Subri

Pulau Pinang attacker Mohd. Faiz Subri has revealed that it his dream to have the opportunity to play football outside of Malaysia before he hangs up his boots one day.

The Panthers player referred to Johor Darul Ta’azim striker Safee Sali, who spent a few seasons playing in Indonesia, as he is ready for a new challenge in his life.

“If there is a chance, I will take it because apart from Safee, there were a few local players that played with teams from outside the country,” Faiz said as quoted by Utusan Malaysia.

He said this after receiving The Player of the Month award for February, which was organized by the Professional Footballers Association of Malaysia (PFAM) and presented by their CEO, Izham Ismail, in Pulau Pinang yesterday.

The Kedah-born player said he is ready to consider offers from other teams in the M-League.

“However, for now my focus will be with Pulau Pinang and our mission to record a positive result when we face Kelantan in Kota Bharu this weekend,” Faiz Subri added.


Faiz Subri’s goal against Pahang last month still holds a conversation until today, because it was world-class. No one in their right mind would ever imagine such a goal. However, the ex-Kelantan player did do it and he owed it all to his free-kick practices during training sessions. He is almost at the end of his career and he wants to move to another club before he retires. He offers a great range of passing, a burst of speed and obviously, he is a set-piece master. He needs to leave The Panthers before by the end of this season in order to make it worthwhile at another club, because he has a good two or three years left under his belt.
