Kpah Sherman’s six-month deal with Malaysia Premier League club MISC-MIFA has proven to be a good decision as he has managed to find the net six times from seven league appearances.
In an effort to rediscover his goalscoring form, Liberian international striker, Kpah Sherman made a move to the South Eastern Asian state to continue his career as a professional footballer.
The 25-year-old signed a six-month deal with Malaysia Premier League club, whose full name is the Malaysian Indian Sports Council-Malaysian Indian Football Association.
Lying in the bottom three of the Malaysia Premier League, Sherman’s decision to join MISC-MIFA was a difficult one as he has not played in Asia and wouldn’t be playing with the best players in the league to help him settle down.
He scored his sixth goal during MISC-MIFA’s midweek fixture against Terengganu. Terengganu, sitting second place on the premier league table, were the clear favorites to win the encounter. As expected, Terengganu triumphed, but Sherman, whose target is to score ten goals before the end of the league, kept his dream alive by scoring the only goal for MISC-MIFA.
With six goals to his name and two matches to end the league season, Sherman must score four goals to meet the quota he set when he moved to Malaysia. Four goals in two games might appear difficult but the former YANGA striker believes he’s on course and will reach his target.
“I’m happy that I have registered my sixth goal. We played against a top team and I managed to get on the scoresheet,” Sherman told The Bush Chicken. “Not the result we wanted but I’m on course for my target of ten goals. It appears difficult, but impossible is nothing.”
Before his move to Malaysia, the former BYC striker had only played in Africa and Europe. He had stints in Sweden, Cyprus, Tanzania, and South Africa, where he won two league titles and one FA Cup to be in the list of Liberians winning two top league titles in two different countries. He became the second Liberian player behind George Weah with such achievement.
