Finding the right replacement for a 20-goal a season striker is not an easy task.The loss of Anderson is also expected to hit Kedah hard. The burly defender has built up quite a reputation with the adoring Kedah fans, often seen leading the fans to chants or cheers after every win. The Australian centre back seemed to have struck up a good understanding and partnership with Khairul Helmi at the heart of Kedah’s defence, with his physical presence helping him to win many a challenge, whether on the ground or aerially.Both announcements looked a coordinated one with both players posting on their social media account immediately after helping Kedah secure an impressive 3-2 away first leg win over Selangor in the Malaysia Cup quarterfinal on Friday.However, the two players have vowed that despite their different paths next season, will continue to give Kedah their 100% until the end of the season.
