Khairy Jamaluddin agrees to debate TMJ on live television

Youth and Sports minister Khairy Jamaluddin has publicly accepted TMJ’s challenge of participating in a live television debate, to discuss issues pertaining to the local football scene.

Speaking to reporters in a press conference earlier today, Khairy said: “Yes, okay. I’m not sure if it’s good for football, but I presume it’s something that needs to be done.”

The matter was also confirmed by his press secretary, Regine Lee, who posted an update on Twitter regarding the issue.

Tunku Ismail or TMJ, as he is fondly known, issued the challenge through a statement that was released on Johor Southern Tigers’ Facebook page last night. Besides Khairy, he also called upon Datuk Ong Kim Swee, B. Sathianathan as well as Lim Teong Kim to feature in the debate.

“Let’s do it for our football fans. Their voices should be our priority because we serve them and they have the right to know the truth about what is the actual problem facing Malaysian football,” he said.

As of now, Khairy is the second person to accept TMJ’s challenge after Sathianathan agreed to it, earlier today.
