PETALING JAYA: The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) is ready to meet Johor Crown Prince Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim over claims he has a pendrive containing information and details of wrongdoings within FAM.
FAM secretary-general Datuk Hamidin Mohd Amin (pic) said every individual had the right to lodge a report to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) if there was any wrongdoing.
"I will contact TMJ regarding the issue," he told reporters here on Monday.
Tunku Ismail in a Facebook post on Johor Darul Ta'zim official page Johor Southern Tigers alleged wrongdoings in the FAM, including with regard to the sales of tickets for the FA Cup and Malaysia Cup finals.
He had claimed that the pendrive was given to him by high-ranking friends in Kuala Lumpur.
Meanwhile, Hamidin urged the four JDT players who had announced their retirement from the national squad to submit their reasons.
He said the FAM would like to know the reasons for their action, especially the decision to quit at the same time.
"We (FAM) will also send a letter to the players through their club (JDT), to seek the cooperation of the players to write in and explain their reasons to retire from the national squad," he said, adding that the issue of four JDT players quitting the national team would be discussed at the National Team Management Committee meeting on Aug 10.
"Players have their right to retire, just that we are surprised by their decision since their performance is at the peak currently. We will follow the procedures by sending a letter to them and upon receiving a reply seek an endorsement in the meeting," he said.
Hamidin said the players had only made the announcement on JDT's Facebook page but have yet to submit anything in writing to FAM.
The four players who decided to quit the national team are Safiq Rahim, Aidil Zafuan Abdul Razak, S. Kunalan and Amirulhadi Zainal. – Bernama
