July has been a great month for us at FC Kuala Lumpur so far!

More so when we got news that two of our players have been selected for trials at Johor Darul Takzim, who recently won the Malaysian Super League title.

Muhammad Danial Ariff and Aidiel Zachary of the FC Kuala Lumpur Under 12 squad will be heading down south for preliminaries. If successful, they will play with the JDT U13s starting 2020 onwards!

The players are evidently excited about the news, and have high hopes of booking themselves a spot in the squad. 

“I feel really proud to be selected, and I hope to perform my best. Hopefully then the coaches will be impressed with my performance,” said Aidiel.


“I hope that I can perform my best over there, and hopefully it will lead to me playing with the senior team, with my idols, in the future,” added Danial. 

U12 head coach Chris Nathan also added his well-wishes to the boys on their selection to the JDT trials. 

“I feel very proud that they were selected, as this is what we’ve been working on here – getting players to reach their potential and to a higher level,” he said.

Coach Chris also had some advice for the boys.

“Go there with an open mind; do your best. It can be a little bit nerve-wracking to go to a club of that stature, and it’s important to go there, not to have any conclusions in their head, just go there, work hard and show what they can do over there”

We at FC Kuala Lumpur wish them all the best on their trials and future!
