Ruventhiran Officially Joins Selangor FC

Ruventhiran, or Ruven as he is more affectionately known, was officially announced today as the Red Giants' new local player for the 2023 Malaysian League season.

This Klang-born player, before his professional career in Malaysian football, he was part of the youth team for the Red Giants. Ruven contributed one goal and four assists to the Selangor Youth team back in 2019. The following year, he was then promoted to the Selangor President's team, but only managed to play in four matches and scored one goal before the tournament was canceled due to the Covid-19 virus, which was sweeping the world at the time.

Ruven, who describes himself as a hard-working player, broke into the Super League competition and began his professional career two years ago with the main team of PJ City FC, where he made 41 appearances and recorded two goals and three assists.

The left-footed player's best year continued in 2022, when he was called up to take part in the AFF Under-23 Championship in Cambodia, until recently managed to slot his name in the final list of the Harimau Malaya main team for the Mitsubishi Electric AFF Cup 2022 after performing brilliantly throughout the season including in Tier 1 International Matches two weeks ago.

‘Bagaikan sirih pulang ke gagang’ has become the suitable proverb with the return of this young player who was born on August 24, 2001. His desire to be part of the team for the state where he was born finally became a reality in 2023.

"I have played with the President and Selangor Youth teams before, so returning to Selangor FC is not something new for me but I am happy to wear this team's jersey again. I really want to play with Selangor FC's main team because I believe that Selangor is a big team and has amazing supporters. I'm ready to play and give everything for the team," said Ruven during an interview with the Selangor FC Media team.

Welcome to Selangor FC, Ruventhiran. Hopefully, he will be able to bolster the Red Giants' defensive and winger position for the 2023 Malaysian League season.

Good luck Ruven!
