Muhamad Khalid Jamlus (born on 23 February 1977) is a Malaysian footballer who is currently unattached. He is a former member of the Malaysian national team and also has played for the Pre-Olympic squad. In 2002, he went on trial with Eintracht Frankfurt.
Khalid first played for Perak FA President's Cup Team before being selected to join the Olympic 2000. After Olympic 2000 was disbanded, he left to play for his former club. During his first stint with Perak FA, he was a crowd favourite. However, doubts about his work-rate persisted throughout his stint with the Seladang. In December 2004, he signed for Selangor FA.
After spending two seasons for the Red Giants, he returned to Perak FA in time for the 2006 season. He forged a lethal partnership with Guinean Keita Mandjou, scoring 15 of the 36 goals that were scored between them. His efforts led him to become a front-runner for the Favourite Striker Award.
He left Perak FA along with his teammate Ahmad Azlan Zainal to join Kelantan FA for the 2009 season. He then left Kelantan FA to joined ATM FA for the 2010 season. Khalid returned to Kelantan FA for the 2011 season, however he was not retained in the team for the 2012 season.
After establishing himself as a first-team player for the country in 2001, Khalid's international career was rocked when he was sacked by the then-head coach Allan Harris, along with Kamarulzaman Hassan and Azmin Azram Abdul Aziz for staying out late at a disco before the 2002 World Cup preliminary games against Qatar, Palestine and Hong Kong.
Khalid is widely considered as the best target man in the country, and has been proven right by coaches such as Bertalan Bicskei, who stuck with him throughout the 2004 Tiger Cup. He eventually silenced his critics with 2 goals against archrivals Thailand, in a game in which Malaysia won 2-1.
However, he has not been selected for the national team in recent years.
Despite being a maligned figure whenever he is on the pitch, he nonetheless remains one of the most recognisable faces in Malaysian football.
