Sarawak long serving goalkeeper Aidil Mohamad has decided to call it a day.
The 35-year-old goalkeeper has revealed he has decided to hang his boots professionally on his official Facebook saying that it was a hard decision to make, but added that the time has come for him to call it a day and spend more time with his family.
In a brief statement, Aidil thanked the management of Sarawak,and all his supporters for being behind him when he was playing. He also gave special credit to the coaching staff, especially Azley Abdullah.
One of Sarawak’s longest serving player, Aidil started his career with the Crocs and was promoted to play with the senior squad in 2007.
The Mukah born player played a vital role in helping Sarawak gain promotion to the Premier League in 2012, but found himself playing second fiddle to Sani Anuar when Robert Alberts took over.
Since then he hardly played for the first team and spent most of his time warming up the reserve bench.
Aidil’s retirement means that a spot between the post is now open for the taking.
Nonetheless, it is highly believed that a young player from Sarawak’s youth system would be called to fill the vacancy.
