Malaysians react to PM Najib’s comment about Kelantan FA’s financial woes

Our Prime Minister Najib Razak has spoken out about Malaysia’s football fiasco, particularly referring to the clubs that have to withdraw from the Malaysia League due to financial problems.

The PM took to both Facebook and Twitter to convey his concern and hopes that the Kelantan Football Association (KAFA) and other states involved will “find a way” to solve their financial troubles.

In the statement, PM Najib also assures KAFA fans that he has spoken to Tan Sri Annuar Musa regarding his resignation as KAFA’s president. He has urged Tan Sri Annuar to “not disappoint” fans of The Red Warriors.

The PM also stressed that football is the number 1 sport in the country, and hopefully we will all find a way to iron out the problems in local football.

KAFA is in need of at least RM 15 million if they are to stay on in the Malaysia League. Selangor could very well join Kelantan and withdraw from the league as well.

Here’s how Malaysians reacted to his comments:
