KUALA LUMPUR – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has expressed pride over the great performance displayed by the Harimau Malaya squad in the final of the AFF Suzuki Cup 2014 Saturday night.
“Although beaten, I’m so proud with Harimau Malaya’s performance.
“Insya-Allah (God willing), they will excel in the future,” he said in his latest entry on Facebook and Twitter.
Malaysia failed to win the AFF Suzuki Cup after losing to Thailand on a 3-4 aggregate in the second leg final at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil here.
Despite losing 2-3 in the match, the Thai squad under coach Kiatisuk Senamuang were crowned champions following their first leg 2-0 win advantage at the Rajamangala Stadium in Bangkok last Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said that he also felt proud with the performance of the squad coached by Dollah Salleh.
“Still proud of the Tigers,” he tweeted. – BERNAMA
