In the past two years I have enjoyed playing in Malaysia for AFC Cup games with Kitchee and was convinced by those experiences this Country was where I wanted to ply my trade next because the support and passion from the fans is outstanding and the level ever increasing.
It was nice to get a positive send off from everyone in Hong Kong and the outgoing statement from Kitchee President Mr Ken Ng were very nice as he said: "We are very sorry to see Zesh go but understand the reason why. It is a step he should take, with his future and family in mind. Zesh has contributed to the Kitchee success in the last two years by strengthening our defense. His friendliness with everyone in the team also helped to create a good team spirit. We congratulate him on his new move to Malaysia and wish him every success for the future"
It was also very humbling to read the comments from my new club, Zainal Abidin Hassan ex Malaysian International legend and key figure with in Pahang FA commented: "We are delighted Zesh chose to come to Pahang ahead of several other teams.
