Spurs to play Malaysia

The Spurs will play a Malaysian select team at the Shah Alam Stadium on May 27, three days before facing off against Australian A-League side Sydney FC in another friendly match in Sydney.

It will be Tottenham’s first visit to Malaysia since 1979.

“We are delighted to be visiting Malaysia and looking forward to giving our fans in that part of the world a chance to see us play up close against some of the best players from their country,” Spurs head coach Mauricio Pochettino said.

“We are well aware of the passionate following we have across Asia and the well-established supporters club that we have in Malaysia, and hope that we can put on a fantastic show for them on the night as a way of thanking them for the continued support they give us from the other side of the world every week.”

Tottenham still have seven Premier League fixtures to complete before attention can turn to their international tour. A place in the Champions League is still a possibility for the White Hart Lane Club, with Liverpool and Manchester City’s recent poor results opening ab opportunity for Pochettino’s team.
