skipper Mohamed Marhan Mohamed Jalil has recovered form his shoulder injury and is ready to resume his playing career in the Malaysia Hockey League (MHL).
But only this time he will don Universiti Kuala Lumpur (UniKL) colours.
Marhan signed a three-year deal with UniKL yesterday and has already started training with his new team.
The international midfielder will be a much needed boost for the UniKl team who is trying to break into the top four of the MHL.
UniKL coach A. Arulselvaraj said that he was [pleased to have Marhan in the team.
'He is a strong midfield players and has vast experience. He will be of great benefit to us and we are looking forward to the new season with relish,” he said.
Sapura, a former two-time overall and league champions, have decided not to enter a team in the MHL this season.
Most of their players have already been snapped up.
Marhan's return to the game will also be good news to the national team.
The players provides the thrust in the team and his injury sustained in October was expected to take six months to heal.
“But it has healed sufficiently and he can train normally. Of course we need to bring him into the game gradually but so far the signs are good that he wil be fully ready for the challenge,” added Arulselvaraj.
