KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 23 (Bernama) -- Kelantan Football Association (KAFA) adviser Tan Sri Annuar Musa hopes that affiliate members of the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) will have the guts to offer themselves for the post of president at the annual congress on May 25.
He said the post of FAM president could be challenged by any member of its affiliates based on the existing statute, but it did not happen because some of them were worried of being criticised if they failed to carry out their entrusted duties.
"This time around, I hope there will be the courageous from among the affiliate members. Not enough just to sigh; if there is someone capable, he should be nominated.
"Malaysian football needs a major motivation. The time has come, as we have talked about it for a long time and we have gone through much, but if we return to the same way when the selection comes around, there will be no changes."
He said this in response to a recent statement by FAM secretary-general Datuk Hamidin Mohd Amin recently that they were open on the question of nominations for the post of FAM president.
Annuar was met by reporters after the launching of Kelantan Fiesta 2014 and the introduction of the AFC team jersey by Tourism and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz at the foyer of the Mara Building, here, today.....
