KOTA BHARU, Oct 4 (Bernama) -- Kelantan Football Association (KAFA) will be devoting its attention on two important issues faced by the association before carrying out plans on its team in Malaysia League (M-League) next season.

Its president, Bibi Ramjani Ilias Khan said the management would be focusing on Kelantan's the last Super League match against Melaka United on Oct 21 and acquiring the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) and Asian Football Confederation (AFC) club licence to enable the team compete in Malaysia League next season.

"It is more important than everything as it involved the status of whether the team are eligible to join the M-League (2018) next season," she said when contacted by Bernama today.

Bibi Ramjani was commenting on former Red Warriors coach Velizar Emilov Popov's readiness to return to the squad next season.

"We do not want to talk about forming the team in terms of players or coach before the Melaka United match and before we meet all the conditions set by FAM and the Football Malaysia Limited Liability Partnership (FMLPP) to qualify for the licence for next season," she added.....
