KUALA TERENGGANU, April 6 (Bernama) -- Terengganu Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Said said that he has every right to intervene in the state's football affairs because the state government is providing the fund for the Terengganu team, as well as the T-Team, to compete in the Super League championship.
"All menteris besar have the right to intervene in their respective state football team's affairs as the largest portion of the allocation for their teams would come from their state governments and not from the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM)," he said.
Ahmad was commenting on the statement by FAM Disciplinary Committee chairman Datuk Taufek Abdul Razak who said that the menteri besar had no business interfering in PBSNT affairs concerning the 'tunnel incident'.
Ahmad also rapped the committee for its decision to impose fine of RM30,000 on Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT) team for the tunnel incident at the Larkin Stadium, Johor, on Feb 1 last year.
The menteri besar said the committee had made a selective decision or 'being biased' because it had only imposed the fine on JDT for failure to provide security control in the stadium which led to the incident.....
