“I understand that this club were established 10 years ago by former Penanti assemblyman, Datuk Dr Norlela Ariffin. Faisal Halim, who is now a national player, also started his training here under the Kelab Bola Sepak DNA, now known as Kelab Bola Sepak DNA Faisal Halim.

“Today, the club have almost 200 members consisting of talented young individuals. The State Government, under the sports portfolio, is always focused on the development of football,” he said when met after officiating a football clinic and thanksgiving feast for Faisal in Mengkuang Titi here yesterday, which was also attended by the national player’s father, Abdul Halim Saad.

Mohamad also prayed for Faisal’s recovery, who is currently placed in a secret location for rehabilitation. He urged all parties to stop all forms of violence, including in football.
