The Liberian experienced playmaker put on an extraordinary display, propelling his team to a remarkable victory over his countryman Abu Kamara. Speaking to FrontPage Africa after the match via WhatsApp, the former Monrovia Club Breweries FC and LISCR FC player said he is grateful for winning his first trophy in his debut season in Malaysia.
“The feeling is great, first year in Malaysia Super League and first trophy, the feeling is overwhelming for me and my teammates. This means a lot to me, my teammates, and the management of my club. It has been over two decades plus this club hasn’t won a trophy, and for me, it means a lot to be able to help my club hugely on the field and off the field through prayer and fasting also. I have spent a few years outside Liberia as a professional player, and to win my third major trophy outside, I am happy. I won two in the Jordan Professional League and now one in the Malaysia Super League,” Marcus added.
“My debut year in this league, and to win a trophy, I’m overwhelmed by it. I am happy but not complacent about it; more work needs to be done. I’m always willing to learn more,” Marcus concluded. He has now won three titles outside Liberia, including the Jordan FA Cup and Jordan Super Cup with Al Ahli Jordan.
