Former World Player of the Year and Ballon d’Or winner Luis Figo made a special appearance in the 2019 Johor Darul Ta’zim FC (JDT) jersey launch video, joining a list of some household names that have made appearances in previous videos produced by the club.
The marquee videos the club have produced over the years, all directed by owner HRH Major General Tunku Ismail Ibni Sultan Ibrahim himself, have been something to look forward to yearly and it has brought about the inclusion of some of world football’s most recognisable faces for the past two years.
Robert Pires featured in the 2018 jersey launch video as he handed a ‘package’ to the JDT players at the airport upon the Frenchman’s arrival in a private jet. Part II of the video, which was the announcement of Gonzalo Cabrera’s return to JDT, saw Hernan Crespo, Alessandro Nesta and Rivaldo feature alongside JDT players and the Crown Prince of Johor.
The Southern Tigers also produced quality videos when introducing the 2016 and 2017 jerseys.
