After not getting a promotion at Selangor FC, Quentin Cheng moved to Penang FC on loan.

In early 2020,

has been playing for

Selangor FC

2 and was aiming for a promotion to their first team for this season.

Everything was going well as after the 2020 league campaign, he was selected to play for the first team in Malaysia Cup, however, due to the increasing number of new COVID-19 cases in Malaysia the competition was canceled and he did not get a chance to play for the first team.

"I had been upset that I did not get to play in the first game (Selangor's round of 16 match against Melaka United), but there was nothing anyone could do about the COVID situation,” Cheng said in an interview.

Now for 2021, he was not promoted permanently to the first team, so he asked for a loan move to another top-tier club

Penang FC


“I pushed for it (loan move to Penang). They were interested in me and the lifestyle over here is pretty good. 

“I've been to Georgetown a couple of times before and had fun, I enjoyed the food and it felt like a good place to enjoy my football.”

He is now just focused on his new club and fighting for his spot.

“It has been a pretty good first week for me. The new head coach (Tomas Trucha) has just arrived a couple days ago, all the boys have been very welcoming and helpful in getting me settled in. I've been pretty happy here.

“I hope I can start [games], but I guess I have to fight for my position in the first eleven. For me, I just want to start and play in as many Super League and cup games as possible, and hopefully put in good performances.”

However, he still would prefer to go back to his old club.

“I would very much like to go back to Selangor, so hopefully I will impress everyone here and get first team opportunities back at Selangor. That would be good.”
