The hipster’s choice: 10 Malaysian Premier League stars you need to know

Think you know the Malaysian Premier League? FourFourTwo’s Darren Goon eschews the household names and picks 10 footballers who just might be flying under the radar so far this season...

As we all know too well, the Malaysian Super League’s little brother lacks the organisation, overall quality, and most importantly, the coverage of Malaysia’s top tier. So, we’re doing our part to shed some light on the Premier League, and all its wonders, particularly after some of the league’s members caused such a sensation in domestic cup competitions last season.

After spending some time under the blazing tropical sun for 4.45pm kick-offs (that’s what happens when your stadium lacks floodlights), this list of ten of the most underrated, most unsung heroes the Premier League has seen so far was born. Bearing in mind that the Premier League is also a fertile stomping ground of numerous ex-Super League stars, we’ll be foregoing the obvious picks, dispensing with the mainstream names. See ya, Baddrol Bakhtiar. Nope, everyone’s heard of El-Hadji Diouf. Francis Forkey Doe? He’s soooo 2013. Let’s begin.
