Former national footballer and sports broadcaster Serbegeth Singh has passed in what was believed to be a heart attack today. He was 61. The former Kuala Lumpur player, popularly known as “Shebby” to football fans, died at about 7pm while he was cycling in Sunway Iskandar in Iskandar Puteri.
Police have yet to confirm the actual cause of his death. Shebby started his football career as a defender for Johor in the late 1970s and made his impact in the M-League after moving to Kuala Lumpur.
A rock in the KL central defence, Shebby was a key member of the legendary KL team that won the Malaysia Cup three years in a row from 1987–89.
In 2006, Shebby became the coach of reality TV football team MyTeam. He also served as Melaka’s technical adviser in 2007.
Outspoken and insightful, Shebby went on to become a popular TV pundit in Asia before moving to the English Premier League as Blackburn Rovers global adviser in 2012.
He donned the Malaysian kit 61 times, playing his final game against England in a friendly at Stadium Merdeka in 1991.
On the local front, Shebby played for his home state of Johor as well as Kuala Lumpur, where he achieved his greatest success as a player winning every major domestic honour.
Shebby led Kuala Lumpur to four consecutive league titles – 1986, 1987, 1988 and 1989 – three consecutive Malaysia Cup victories in 1987, 1988 and 1989, and two FA Cup titles in 1993 and 1994.
