This Stadium Astro article recapped an interview with Safiq Rahim on the Bola@Mamak show where he said players who join JDT are making the right decision.
“Look at what has been done by JDT now. Don’t envy what they have achieved. You should envy their efforts.
“They treat footballers like world class players. I have been playing football for 10-15 years in Malaysia, nothing much has changed and the only club making changes is JDT.
Safiq, who donned the JDT jersey from 2013 to 2018, won all major trophies and helped JDT become the first Malaysian (and East Asian) team to win the AFC Cup in 2015.
He also mentioned that JDT owner HRH Major General Tunku Ismail Ibni Sultan Ibrahim, Crown Prince of Johor has provided world class facilities in Johor and that HRH’s plans have made JDT the best club in Malaysia at the moment.
“When I first joined JDT, TMJ showed me JDT’s plans to even the construction of a new stadium and today, JDT have their own stadium,” he added.
