Playing career

Dollah was one of Malaysia's top footballers in the 80's and 90's. He with striking partner "the King`` Zainal Abidin Hassan were regarded as the twin strikers by the local football fans. Dollah first played in Malaysian football in 1982. At that time he represented Johor, which was one of the teams in the semi-pro era.

When Dollah joined the Selangor in 1987, a new twin striker was born after the era of Hassan Sani and James Wong. He and Zainal Abidin Hassan became the fierce striking partner for both Selangor and Malaysia national team.

Coaching career

Dollah started his coaching career with Selangor MPPJ in 2003. The same year he guided the team to become the first ever club to win Malaysia Cup by beating Sabah 3–0. He later guided Selangor MPPJ to win the Malaysia Charity Shield and Malaysia Premier League in 2004.

In 2005, Selangor signed a long deal with him. That year, Selangor won three trophies, Malaysia Premier League, Malaysia FA Cup, and Malaysia Cup. However, in 2005–06 season, Selangor failed to keep their momentum as they failed to win any trophy.

Even though Selangor failed to win any trophy, Selangor kept Dollah in charge for 2006–07 season. The 2007–08 season saw the revival of Selangor as they went through to the final of Malaysia FA Cup and Malaysia Cup. However they were beaten by Kedah with the same score line in the two finals. The failure saw Dollah left out by the management.

In 2009 season, Dollah reunited with his partner Zainal Abidin Hassan. This time they played the role as manager and coach for Kuantan Port-Shahzan Muda.

In the middle of the 2009 season, he switched to coach Pahang, replacing Tajuddin Noor.

After successfully helping Pahang lift the first Malaysia Cup in 21 years, Dollah signed to coach PDRM for 2014 season in Malaysian second-tier league. In his only season with PDRM, he guided them to the 2014 Malaysia Premier League title and promotion to Super League.

Dollah was appointed as the new head coach of Malaysia national team on June 2014, signing a 2-year contract. He led Malaysia to win second place during the 2014 AFF Suzuki Cup. However, he received many criticisms as he was responsible for 6-0 defeats against Palestine and Oman. Malaysia drew with Timor Leste, Bangladesh and Hong Kong. Malaysia conceded 3 goals to Tajikistan and Syria that were at the same standard as Malaysia earlier in 2014. His last straw was the 10-0 defeat against UAE. He resigned as head coach on 3 September 2015.
