LANGKAWI: Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin has expressed support for a proposal to have the Harimau Muda A (Under-23) boys compete in the Queensland State League (Second Division) in Australia.
He said that this was one way of providing greater exposure to the squad and that it could be seen as an investment for the development of Malaysian football.
“We are confident coach Datuk Ong Kim Swee has the right plan to help in the development of the squad by giving them the exposure in the Queensland League,” he told reporters after the Royal Langkawi International Regatta (RLIR) event on Tuesday.
