When mentioned the name Marlon Alex James to Malaysian football fans, three things come to mind. Goals, goals, and more goals!
Ever since he arrived here in 2004 to play for the now-defunct side Selangor MK Land, the Vincetion international striker will always find the net one way or the other. Thus cementing himself as one of the greatest goalscorers in the Super League.
His goals have been played an important role for many reasons but there is none bigger than helping Kedah to clinch an unprecedented back-to-back TREBLE (Super League, FA Cup, and Malaysia Cup). A feat that has yet to be matched to this day.
His love for Malaysia is so much that when foreign players were allowed back in 2012 (Football Association of Malaysia barred foreign players from competing in the Malaysia Super League starting from 2008 season), he immediately made a quick return. Marlon James, suit up for the Armed Force team and went on to have several more fantastic years before deciding on hanging on his boots for good.
