PFAM president Hai-O applauds FMLLP’s decision to dock points

Professional Footballers Association of Malaysia (PFAM) president Hairuddin Omar believes the measures taken by Football Malaysia Limited Liability Partnership (FMLLP) to punish the Malaysia Super League and Malaysia Premier League teams were the right thing to do.

Hairuddin Omar said that the docking of six points each of the four teams was necessary.

According to the ex-national team player, the punishment imposed by FMLLP CEO Kevin Ramalingam will be a lesson to all teams who fail to pay salaries to their players and staff.

“The issues of unpaid wages are happening in the highest division of Malaysian football. We obviously agree that the punishment fits the crime,” he said as quoted by Berita Harian.

“PFAM are on board with FMLLP’s decision to dock points and suspend the transfer of players between those clubs because it acts as a lesson to them and other teams in the country.”

Super League sides Kelantan and T-Team and Premier League clubs ATM FA and Perlis had six points docked from their standings and saw themselves drop places in the league.
