Muhammad Shakir bin Hamzah (born 20 October 1992) is a Singaporean professional footballer who plays as a defender for Malaysia Super League club Kedah and the Singapore national team.

Club career[edit]

Young Lions[edit]

Shakir began his career with Young Lions in the S.League in 2009 after graduating from the National Football Academy.

LionsXII[edit]

In December 2011, Shakir was named in the newly formed LionsXII squad for the 2012 Malaysia Super League. He played on the left side of defence as the Lions won the Super League in 2013.

In June 2013, Shakir served four days of detention for going absent without leave from his National Service. He had travelled away with the LionsXII squad for a Super League match with Pahang on 17 May without obtaining official approval.[2] He was suspended from all football activities by the Football Association of Singapore pending an investigation and was later fined S$4,000 and ordered to serve 30 hours of community service in football-related activities.[3][4]

Tampines Rovers[edit]

Following the disbandment of the LionsXII, Shakir signed for S.League powerhouse Tampines Rovers on a two-year contract.[5][6]

Home United[edit]

Shakir was released by Tampines following the conclusion of the 2017 S.League season due to disciplinary issues.[7] He was subsequently signed by Home United for the 2018 Singapore Premier League season.[8]

Kedah FA[edit]

Shakir signed for the MSL club, Kedah for the 2019 season. His first season for the Malaysian side was a success; playing as a centre back, he scored 4 goals for the club and was the only Kedah player to be named in the 2019 MSL Team of the Season while also helping his side to the 2019 Malaysia FA Cup Final.[9] Shakir won the 2019 Malaysia FA Cup in his first season with the club.[10]

International career[edit]

Shakir was part of the 2013 Southeast Asian Games squad which won a bronze medal. He made his senior team debut starting in the first leg of the Causeway Challenge against Malaysia on 8 June 2012.

He scored his first international goal in a 1–1 draw against Turkmenistan in a 2019 AFC Asian Cup qualification match.[11] He followed up with his second international goal in a 3–2 friendly win over Maldives at the Singapore Sports Hub. It was also his second consecutive international goal.[12]

Others[edit]

Singapore Selection Squad[edit]

Shakir was part of the Singapore Selection squad for The Sultan of Selangor’s Cup held on 6 May 2017.[13]
