On the ball

Harmony is important to singers Sezairi Sezali, Alif Satar and 
Judika - but not when it comes 
to talking football

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE TEAM?

Alif: When I was nine, I was in a youth team in Kuala Lumpur and I was picked to train with Manchester United's Ole Gunnar Solskjær (currently the manager for Cardiff City). So Manchester United has always been my number one, but this season has been very bad. Bayern Munich, this season, has been stellar.

Judika: Manchester United.

Sezairi: I've always been a Liverpool fan, even though I grew up in a Manchester United household. I grew up getting Manchester United merchandise for my birthday.

FAVOURITE PLAYER OF ALL TIME?

Alif: Maradona.

Judika: Cristiano Ronaldo. His speed is good, his dribbling is good, his style and hair are good.

Sezairi: (Liverpool captain) Steven Gerrard.

Judika: That's because (Fernando) Torres moved (from Liverpool to Chelsea).

WHAT DO YOUR WIVES AND GIRLFRIENDS THINK OF FOOTBALL?

Alif: I used to think it wasn't nice to ask whoever I was dating to watch, but I think now there are a lot of cute guys for them to look at.

Judika: My wife used to get very jealous because sometimes I would come home and forget to say hello to her and go straight to watching the match. But now I think she's used 
to it.

Sezairi: My girlfriend doesn't like soccer at all. I've had ex-girlfriends who love Manchester United and we had to break up immediately (laughs). I don't know why people say women don't like soccer because I have a lot of friends who are fans. My girlfriend supports whoever I support.

WHAT'S NEXT FOR YOU THIS YEAR?

Judika: I'm working on my fourth album, with songwriters and music producers from Sweden.

Alif: I'm busy with promotions for my third album Definisi. I'm like a clown, juggling many things at once, because I also act and host. But busy is good.

Sezairi: My new song Sayang was just released and I'm going to film the music video in Kuala Lumpur. There will be a new single coming as well and a possibility for me to collaborate with someone from Indonesia.
