No Such Thing As Professional Here

Caceres: Out of cash
Many years ago, talented South American or African unable to make it in Europe can always turn to the Malaysian league to provide their service and earn decent income. Not anymore, as former Chilean trio of Perak imports has discovered.

Carlos Caceres, Jorge Nunoz and Mario Bario have recently written to Fifa, seeking the football governing body assistance to help claim total of USD54,000 owing to them by the Perak FA.

The trio claimed they had also written to FAM four months ago but have not heard anything since then. Little did they know that the FAM was busy with their brainstorming session, general meeting and serious decision making process on how they could further tear down Malaysian football.

The players resort to press the panic button after finding out that Perak FA president, Nizar Jamaluddin recently made a remark that “former players who have not been paid for five to six months will have to wait”.

“How can a professional association treat players like this?” said the player, apparently unaware that there is no such thing as professional association in Malaysia.
