Azrul Amri Burhan (born 1 November 1975) is a former Malaysian footballer.


He played with Kuala Lumpur FA and Perak FA during his heyday, where he won two Malaysia Cup with Perak and two Malaysia FA Cup with Kuala Lumpur. He also played with Negeri Sembilan FA [1] and club side TNB Kelantan[2] towards the end of his career.

National team[edit]

Azrul has represented the Olympic team. He also played for Malaysia national futsal team, and was in the squad that took part in the 1996 FIFA Futsal World Championship in Spain.[3]

His stint with Olympic team was notable, for when he played in the 1995 Toulon Tournament, he received a severe injury when he was tackled by a young David Beckham while playing against England.[4] The injury, along with his discipline problems, curtailed a promising international future for Azrul who was tipped to be a star midfielder for Malaysia.
