Kedah: The 2019 Malaysia Super League top scorer Kpah Sherman admits that his dream is to win trophies with Kedah FA as the 2020 campaign gets set to resume after a more than five-month hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Liberian's form saw him snapped up by FA Cup winners Kedah ahead of the 2020 campaign and, with a shorter more condensed version of the Malaysia Super League set to get back underway at the end of August, both player and club have their eyes on more trophies.
