KUALA TERENGGANU Former Terengganu City FC (TCFC) player, Mohamad Solihin Mahamad died at the Sultanah Nur Zahirah Hospital (HSNZ) last night due to a heart attack.
His brother-in-law, Mohd Sayuzi Mansor said Muhammad Solihin, 24, vomited before collapsing on the pitch during a friendly match at the Sultan Ismail Nasiruddin Shah Stadium while representing his team, Gong Parit FC against Tualang FC.
“He breathed his last at 7 pm yesterday, and was buried at the Kampung Bukit Depu Muslim Cemetery at 9 pm,” he said, adding that the youngest of eight siblings, who was still single, did not have any health problems prior to this.
According to Mohd Sayuzi, Mohamad Solihin had previously expressed his ambition to represent Terengganu in the country’s upper-tier football leagues, and had turned down an offer to play for the Red Giants last year.
He also helped TCFC emerge champions of the 2018 FAM Cup, besides playing for Negeri Sembilan in the President’s Cup in 2017.
