Fikri joined Nakhon on loan from PKNP FC in June, and recently opened his goalscoring account against Ranong United in a League Cup tie.

But this week, he confided on his Twitter page that he misses home, which had people speculating that he may want to return home.

Shahrel was quick to clarity the doubts.

“There is no story to be made here. I’m just sharing my feelings, but some are already talking of me wanting to return home,” said Shahrel via his Twitter account.

“I’m just here to share my experience living by myself. I know my motive to come here. Of course I miss my mom and dad. I’m the oldest child, and I have four other siblings whom I need to care of. I have left them, but of course I’m not going to leave here and return to Malaysia.”
