At 31, who many would think too young to stop playing professionally, Terengganu FC midfielder Abdul Shukur Jusoh has announced his retirement.
He revealed his decision in an outspoken and heartbreaking social media post.
“Praise Allah, who gave me a long career in football. I apologize that my participation was a nuisance and a horror for many. If the sight of me playing had made you foam in your mouth, I beg your pardon.
“My involvement in sport has never rested on personal relationships. My late dad and mom never even came to see me play because they didn’t really support my passion. I only kept doing it because I felt I had the talent. even as a boy.
“I did not expect to generate such intense resentment, and I hope I never again get anyone to hate me. I pray to Allah that those who deplore me will end up working alongside me in the future, so that they can see for themselves that I’ve never been the type of player who relies on relationships or asks the coach to move on. Thank you all. “
The Terengganu native began his professional career in the now defunct Harimau Muda in 2008, before embarking on his first stint with the Turtles in 2011 and 2012.
