Nabil made his fourth appearance of the season during the 2-0 home conquest of Sabah on Saturday, coming in for Declan who pulled up with cramps in his right thigh, just before the midway point in the second half.
Albeit most of his opportunities are for coming off the bench replacing his Australian heritage teammate near closing time, except for a full 90 minutes he had against Langkawi City in the first round of the FA Cup, the 23 year old who returned to the City Boys after a couple seasons with Petaling Jaya C is not complaining..
Speaking to The Voice of The City Boys, the leftback was proud of his efforts against Ong Kim Swee’s men.
“Alhamdullilah, I think my performance in that game was satisfactory, perhaps good. Insha’Allah I’ll do better and be more consistent in every match”, he remarked.
The Kuala Lumpur born who spent time with the Red & White at both the Under-19 and Under-21 levels, credits the work and guidance given by the City Boys’ technical team in assisting and inspiring him to do better.
Nabil explained, “The coaching staff have helped me a lot in practice, and often motivate me to be more confident of my abilities during game. I also study past videos of my game in matches I played to improve the technical and tactical aspects.”
Finally, Nabil who was part of head coach Bojan’s title winning Harimau Muda squad in the 2018 Asean Football Federation’s Under-19 Championship in Jakarta, Indonesia, told of his experience going up against household names in Malaysia ln football, Amri Yahyah and Badrol Bakhtiar in our last game.
“Both are experienced champions with excellent technical abilities. Credit to my teammates who helped me keep them on a tight leash.”
