10 Malaysia Super League players with the most to prove this season

With only days to go before the new Malaysian Super League season kicks off, FourFourTwo Malaysia's Managing Editor looks at 10 players who must step up big in 2015...

Norazlan Razali (Selangor)

After finding himself behind Izham Tarmizi and Al-Hafiz Hamzah in Johor Darul Ta’zim’s pecking order in 2014, Norazlan welcomed a return to Selangor with open arms. With Farizal Marlias moving the other way, the 29-year-old goalkeeper is the shoo-in favourite to be the man between the goalposts for his former side due to Syamim Othman's lack of experience and Hamsani Ahmad's advancing age. However, he cannot afford to rest on his laurels, as a similar scenario at JDT might happen again if he is unable to prove that he is capable of filling Farizal’s gloves.


Nazmi Faiz Mansor (Selangor)

It is fair to say that Nazmi has so far failed to hit the heights of his Harimau Muda fame or even justify the money Selangor forked out to pry him from PKNS. After joining the Red Giant last April, he only made seven appearances in the league, with four of them coming off the bench, and did not contribute any goal or assist. He fared slightly better in the Malaysia Cup, making eight starts and creating one goal, but you would expect more than that from him. This season will be crucial for him – will he live up to his potential, or will he be another wonderkid failing to make the grade?
