JOHOR BARU: The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) will work closely with UEFA, the European football governing body, on improving the quality of local referees.
President Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah pointed out that the FAM want a total revamp of their refereeing system so as to improve the standard of football in Malaysia.
He stressed that the FAM would launch a programme soon that focuses more on training methods for the men in black.
“We will be engaging a former international referee, who has years of experience in handling top matches and is also the UEFA head of referee development over there.
“The training will be done here ... the main objective of this plan is to identify an elite group of referees ... an attachment programme in football leagues outside the country is also in the pipeline.
“Our main target is to get one or two Malaysian referees to officiate in the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia,” he said at a press conference after attending the launching of the Sultan of Johor Hockey Cup here on Tuesday.
