National U-22 striker S. Kumaahran admitted he is worried about his future at Penang with his contract expiring at the end of this year.
After picking up an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury while on international duty at the 2017 SEA Games, the 21-year-old successfully underwent surgery yesterday and is expected to be out until February 2018.
However, due to the length of his rehabilitation process, his contract with the club might not be renewed for next season, which saddened him.
"I feel sad because this is the final year of my contract with Penang and now I'm injured," Kumaahran told Astro Arena.
"But I still believe I will be able to find a new team [if my contract is not renewed]."
With his future out of his hands, he decided to focus on getting back to full fitness.
"Some of my seniors have been through the same injury before, so I have asked for advice on how to recover from it, including in terms of diet to ensure no weight gain," he said.
"I will do my rehab at either the FAM or the National Sports Council, which has adequate facilities."
