5 reasons why JDT won the MSL ... again, for a record 5th straight time
The Southern Tigers have an impenetrable defence
Safawi Rasid has turned into a goalscoring machine
JDT have always emphasized they are not a one-man team, and success is achieved collectively. But like it or not, this team has revolved around the powerful presence of Safawi Rasid on many occasions.
Not often can a local player claim bragging rights in front of goal, but Safawi can do that after scoring 11 goals so far. He is now their leading goalscorer in a team that have always produced proven foreign hitman like Jorge Pereyra Diaz and Juan Martin Lucero.
Playing from the right flank allows this Terengganu-born to drift in whenever he needs to. When he unleashes that powerful left foot, it often spells danger. Safawi has grown tremendously as a player this year and it has reflected in the team’s performances too.
