Mohammed Ghaddar set to be highest paid footballer in Malaysia

Kelantan striker Mohammed Ghaddar is expected to become the highest paid player in Malaysian football history once his move to Johor Darul Ta’azim (JDT) is officialized.

According to Utusan, the Lebanese international could potentially be looking at a monthly salary of between RM170,000 to RM200,000.

The source highlighted that the reason behind the substantial amount of money is because of the striker’s form for Kelantan this season, after bagging 18 goals in 11 league matches.
