The Football Malaysia Limited Liability Partnership (FMLLP) held a special meeting with the Kelantan Football Association (KAFA) to discuss about points deduction and transfer ban imposed on KAFA recently.
KAFA’s delegation was led its Acting President, Dato’ Seri Haji Afandi bin Hamzah, who sat in with FMLLP’s chief officer, Kevin Ramalingam, to resolve KAFA’s predicaments.
According to FMLLP, KAFA were given a detailed explanation on the requirements to complete the registration process.
KAFA then agreed that the issues surrounding plaguing the club at the moment were due to documentation; they have not submitted the relevant papers to complete the teams’ registration process.
Kevin Ramalingan urged KAFA to submit all the relevant papers, and said it was the best way to resolve all the issues plaguing the team at the moment; like registration of new import players, settlement of outstanding wages of players and deduction of points.
“FMLLP has already explained in detail the procedures and guidelines that KAFA need to follow. What would be the best solution for KAFA is to accept the guidelines and prepare the documents as per our requirement, together with an appeal.” Kevin Ramalingam told Bernama.
“Once the documents are received together with the appeal letter, a decision will be made as to whether the appeal is considered or rejected.” he added.
FMLLP docked six points from Kelantan and imposed a restriction that prevented them from registering new players, after failing to settle the pending wages, and failing to complete the team registration.
KAFA have promised to submit all the relevant documents to FMLLP by the 11th of June. If they fail to do so, the restriction will remain in place and KAFA will not be allowed to register a second player in the transfer window.
