FourFourTwo's Top 25 Malaysian Players of All Time
It all started with a simple idea: compile Malaysia’s greatest footballers into a list.
It was initially quite easy as we effortlessly picked the top 150 players… until we had to narrow it down to a select group of 25 individuals. It then became not quite easy anymore.
Football has been around in this region since at least 1921, when the first Malaysia Cup, then known as the Malaya Cup, was played.
That is nearly a century of football being played, with plenty of talented players having graced the field and made their names.
As we celebrate Malaysia Day this weekend, we figured that there'd be no better way to recognise our nation's best footballers.
Who do we put in? Who do we kick out? Does this player deserve to be ahead of that player? What the heck is Dancing Rasta from Supa Strikas doing in the list?
Picking the best 25 players – though admittedly a few names are a given – was difficult, but the FFT writers painstakingly managed to agree on the final list.
