ALOR SETAR: Kedah skipper Baddrol Bakhtiar (pic) is in high demand.
Several states are eyeing to recruit him for next season but Kedah Football Association (KFA) president Mohd Sanusi Md Nor said they still needed the services of the highly-skilled Baddrol.
Sanusi hopes that he will continue to play for them.
“I do not have any information regarding (the transfer of) Baddrol, although I really hope that he stays with us, ” Sanusi, who is also the Kedah Mentri Besar, told a press conference after tabling the state’s Budget 2021 at Wisma Darul Aman.
He was commenting on the possibility of the 32-year-old player leaving the Hijau Kuning outfit, with quite a number of teams said to be interested in signing him.
The media reported that Baddrol himself had admitted to being ‘approached’ by at least four teams keen on obtaining his services for next season.
Throughout his professional career, Baddrol has only played for Kedah in the Malaysia League, leading them to two Super League and Premier League trophies, four Malaysia Cup titles, three FA Cup successes and one Charity Shield.
Meanwhile, Sanusi clarified that the contract of their Singapore import, Mohd Shakir Hamzah had expired and the Kedah FA would not prevent the player from moving to another team. — Bernama
