PETALING JAYA: Selangor have hired bodyguards for their players.

The club’s chief executive officer (CEO) Dr Johan Kamal Hamidon said they would not compromise on security protocols for their players.

In fact, bodyguards and marshals were in place during the Red Giants game against Kedah at the Petaling Jaya Stadium on Saturday. They beat Kedah 1-0.

"We have hired a few bodyguards for our players. We want to give more assurance and security.

"There are more checkpoints in the stadium and we also strengthened security protocols for players," he said.

"The players cannot go back on their own, they have to board the team bus. We will constantly review our security measures."

Johan said the security for Faisal Halim, who was an acid attack victim at a shopping mall in Damansara on May 5, and his family had been beefed up.

"We have hired personnel to safeguard Faisal's family and also his well-being in the hospital."
