Johor Darul Ta’zim FC’s success in dominating Malaysian football under the leadership of HRH Major General Tunku Ismail Ibni Sultan Ibrahim, Crown Prince of Johor was among the things highlighted in BBC Sport following an interview with the Southern Tigers midfielder Hong Wan.

    The renowned British media outlet reported that “it’s an exceptional time for JDT. Since taking over as owner in 2016, Crown Prince of Johor Mejar General Tunku Ismail Ibni Sultan Ibrahim has helped to revolutionise the squad, finances, facilities and its fortunes. They catch the eye on and off the pitch, with their 40,000-capacity state-of-the-art stadium and club theme song, rapped by Snoop Dogg. The owner’s input has been key.”

    The article also featured Hong Wan’s time at JDT since his move from English club Wolverhampton and mentioned JDT’s Jordi Amat, Shane Lowry and Fernando Forestieri, all of who played in England in the past.
