A caricature artist and cartoonist based in George Town has expressed his excitement at having the opportunity to paint portraits of six Penang football icons on the wall of the City Stadium, the home of Penang FC.

Mohd Azmi Mohd Hussain, 36, said he came up with the idea of immortalising Ali Bakar, Datuk Namat Abdullah, M Kuppan, Pang Siang Hock, Shukor Salleh and Mohd Faiz Subri (the first Asian to win the FIFA Puskas Award) in a mural painting when he was proposed by the Penang City Council (MBPP) to paint the wall with his art.
