KUALA LUMPUR: Selangor have plenty of reasons to be optimistic as they open their Super League campaign against Pahang in Kuantan on Feb 29.
Coach B. Satiananthan is facing a pleasant selection headache as most of his players are doing well in both training and friendly matches.
He sees it as a blessing ahead of the M-League season.
“I have at least 15 players who are in solid form to start in matches. As a coach, I am delighted with the form these players are showing. It is a good sign.”
The former international said he has a few more friendly matches to evaluate his players.
The Red Giants will face Penang and Perak II in friendly matches next.
Satiananthan also disclosed that he regularly speaks to Selangor II coach Michael Feichtenbeiner in regard of the progress of players in the feeder team.
Selangor can use players from their feeder team at any time of the season.
The Red Giants have set a top-two finish in the Super League and to win either the FA Cup or Malaysia Cup this year.
