FAM disciplinary committee drops its charge against national football coach Datuk K. Rajagopal

PETALING JAYA: National coach Datuk K. Rajagopal was let off the hook after the Football Association of Malaysia's (FAM) disciplinary committee found there is no case against him.

Rajagopal landed in hot water after FAM decided to charge him for an alleged comment about the lack of local strikers in the M-League after the national team's 4-1 drubbing by Saudi Arabia in a friendly on March 17

Rajagopal was said to have blamed the situation on the presence of foreign professionals and the FAM allegedly construed that as criticising the national league.

However, after listening to the recording of the post match press conference, disciplinary committee chairman Datuk Taufik Tan Sri Abdul Razak decided to drop the charge against Rajagopal as he did not make such a statement.
