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.
In 1991, he left Selangor to join Pahang with his partner Zainal Abidin Hassan. Together with Zainal and Singapore football star Fandi Ahmad, they create a 'dream team' and manage to win both league and Malaysia Cup in 1992.
With Malaysia national team, Dollah won the gold medal for Malaysia national team in 1989 South East Asian Games. He also helped Malaysia national team to win the 1993 Merdeka Tournament by beating South Korea 3–1. Dollah also played in the first edition of ASEAN Football Championship. Malaysia national team manage to go through into the final of the competition but losing 1–0 to Thailand.
Dollah retired as a player after the 1998 season ended. The last team he represented was Negeri Sembilan.
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.
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.
