KUALA LUMPUR: The former stars have spoken — unanimously holding the FA of Malaysia (FAM) responsible for the sad state of affairs in Malaysian football.
And their prescription for the ills of Malaysian football is simple: “Let us, the former national footballers, play a more significant role in reviving the fortunes of the game in the country.”
About 70 ex-national players attended a one-of-a-kind “Save Malaysian football” dialogue with Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob at the National Stadium Complex in Bukit Jalil.
Some came from as far as Penang. Even “towkay” Soh Chin Aun, sacked as team manager by the FAM on Sunday, was there to give his two cents’ worth.
