Wan Zack, however suffered a knee injury while training with the Japanese club on Oct 1.
Hamidin said that FC Ryukyu had agreed to pay for Wan Zack’s knee surgery.
“I have been told that Wan Zack’s knee injury is quite serious ... he has damaged his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) and his medial ligaments,” he said after announcing the National Football Awards at Wisma FAM on Wednesday.
Hamidin also said that the awards ceremony will be held at the Grand Blue Wave Hotel in Shah Alam on Nov 23.
He added that they will be introducing a best assistant referee award this year.
“A committee, comprising officials from FAM and members from the Malaysian Football Coaches Association and Sportswriters Association of Malaysia (SAM), will pick the winners of the National Football Awards,” he said.
Other than for the best assistant referee, there will also be 12 other awards given out, including for the Most Valuable Player (MVP) .
National striker Norshahrul Idlan Talaha has won the MVP for the last three years.
