Muhammad Faizal bin Kutip

Age : 31 years old

Sport : Football

Sports Advisor at Decathlon Bandar Sri Damansara, Kuala Lumpur

Faizal developed a passion for football since he was 8 during the 1998 FIFA World Cup in France. He fell in love at first sight with the sport when he sees his all-time favorite player, Thierry Henry scored his first international goal against South Africa during the game. Ever since, his love for Football continues even though he has stopped playing professionally. "I have always represented my school in this sport and until now, I still play during my free time because football makes me a complete person and I eventually starts to love it just like I love my life."

Despite his busy schedule juggling his responsibility as a Master student in Education as well as a part time Sports Advisor in Decathlon, he is very known for his friendly and jovial nature. "I like to learn everything related to football like the history of football, tactical techniques and even the products because it made me understand better on the sport. Together with practice and knowledge, I can offer the best service and assistance to my customers. Just like the famous quote from Andrea Pirlo 'Football is played with the head and your legs are just the tools."
He has also contributed his sports science service towards Melaka United FC, during their time training to be the Champion of Malaysia Premier League in 2016.
