When I started this project in 2013, I didnt know much about the local football scene. I started to understand more in 2014 and realised that this club was missing a defensive midfielder — a backbone of the team — and this was my first signing for 2014.

    I met this young guy and told him about my project, intention, what was missing at the club and asked if he could help. He was about to go to Portugal and I convinced him to come here to win titles.

    He decided to be with us when this team was nothing. We didn’t have a training ground, no transportation, no office and such. Today, JDT have become very successful and Hariss Harun has been an integral part of this club.

    Hariss, I would like to personally and on behalf of the club, thank you and wish you all the best in your career. You will always have my support, our support and you will always be part of the JDT Family, and a JDT legend.
