Kelantan football legend Hashim passes away

KOTA BARU: Mohd Hashim Mustapha (pic), the former Malaysian League Golden Boot winner in 1990, 1993 and 1994, passed away at the Universiti Sains Malaysia Hospital (HUSM) in Kubang Kerian on Tuesday.

Mohd Nizab Ayub, the son-in-law of the former prolific striker from Kelantan, said his father-in-law who was receiving treatment in the hospital, passed away at 10.25pm due to complications from diabetes.

“Papa (Mohd Hashim) passed away in the presence of family members by his side at the Intensive Care Unit of HUSM in Kubang Kerian,” he said, when contacted by Bernama.

The 57-year-old Hashim was earlier sedated as his condition was quite critical.

Last October, Hashim underwent surgery to amputate his left leg due to diabetes after having suffered from the ailment for a few years.

The Kota Baru-born player had been appointed as the assistant coach of the Kelantan team from 2010 to 2012 and was later appointed as head coach of the Tok Janggut Warriors FC which played in the M3 League. — Bernama
