Saarvindran Hopes For More Next Year
PETALING JAYA: Versatile D. Saarvindran hopes to get more playing time with Harimau Muda A.
The 20-year-old Klang lad said he is fired up after scoring his first goal in the team’s 2-0 win over Geylang United 2-0 in the Singapore League at the Jalan Besar Stadium on Thursday.
“It is a special feeling to score after 11 matches. But I have not been playing regularly and have started only a few times,” said Saarvindran yesterday.
Against Geylang United, Saarvindran came in as a second-half substitute and made his presence felt instantly by scoring the second goal from a long range attempt.
Earlier, Wan Zack Haikal Wan Nor gave the Malaysian team the lead.
Saarvindran said his aim is to vie for a regular place in the Harimau Muda squad.
“It is not going to be easy with so many talented players around but I will fight for my place and hopefully move up to the national senior team one day.”
His team-mate A. Thamil Arasu said that they are on course for a top five finish in the S-League.
“It is good to be tied at the top of the standings with leader’s Brunei DPMM FC. It is not easy playing against the other teams as they have foreign players,” said Thamil.
Saarvindran and striker Thamil have had training stints in Slovakia. Thamil was also in the SEA Games gold medal team in Jakarta last year.
