Safawi: We will do our best
Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) forward Safawi Rasid has said that his team are determined to shine in the AFC Champions League this season.
The Southern Tigers are set to kick-start their campaign against notable Japanese side Vissel Kobe in Group G at the Kobe City Misaki Park Stadium tomorrow and Safawi insists that he and his teammates are now more organised as a unit.
“This is the second time that me and my teammates are taking part in the ACL which is highly competitive. We have been working on the tactical aspects of our game and we are also now more organised as a whole in order to face some of the best teams in Asia in Group G.
“We will do our best in the group stage and we are determined to go further in the competition this season.
“It’s undeniable that Vissel Kobe features players who have played in the English Premier League and Spanish La Liga and it will be a good oppurtunity for me and my teammates to gain some valuable experience as we try to hold our own against the Japanese side,” said the 22-year-old Malaysia international.
