“I’m really happy today. It’s a feeling I can’t hide. Selangor is a very big team here in Malaysia, and many great players here want to play for the team,” Wleh said. “I was brought here to score, and I must make the staff and the fans happy. With PKNS and the Malaysia All-Star team, I showed I’m a top player here, but I still have to do more if I’m to succeed with Selangor.”
In 2012, Wleh moved to Malaysian Premier League outfit Sime Darby Football Club. In his first season with Sime Darby, Wleh scored a total of 13 league goals, making him the only Sime Darby player to reach such tally in a single season. However, Croatian striker Karlo Primorac broke the record the following season by netting in 24 times for Sime Darby.
