KUALA LUMPUR: Local football fans pining for action may have to wait much longer for its return if the movement control order (MCO) which ends on January 26 is extended.
Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) deputy president Datuk Mohd Yusoff Mahadi said there was a strong possibility the curtain raiser for the M-League scheduled on Feb 26 could not be held even if the MCO is extended for another two weeks.
He said the extension would give teams only less than three weeks to prepare before facing the first match of the league.
Some of the teams are already unable to hold training sessions during the restrictions.
‘’On paper, a two-week extension will mean the MCO will end on Feb 9.
“This means the Super League and Premier League teams only have two weeks to prepare.
‘’They must be given at least one month to be well-prepared, ’’ said Mohd Yusoff. — Bernama
