Football / Malaysia Cup: Perak in financial mess

Not only has Perak FA not paid players and coaches their salaries since April, there is genuine fear that they may not be able to fund their Malaysia Cup campaign.

The reason for Perak FA being in such dire straits is that when BN was in power, the state government gave an RM2.8 million annual allocation. However, no word has been forthcoming since the Pakatan Rakyat coalition swept into power in the March 8 General Election.

"We have tried to reduce expenditure. The team took cheap flights that take a longer time to reach destinations. Still, travelling to Hong Kong and Maldives (where Perak played AFC Cup matches) is not cheap when you travel with 18 players and five officials."

The Asian Football Confederation gave Perak FA US$80,000 (RM264,000) for the AFC Cup campaign but, obviously, this is not enough.

If AFC isn't giving teams enough funds to participate in the AFC Cup, I wonder how are smaller teams from Maldives able to fund their campaigns.

Classic example of mis-managed funds. Politics should not be involved in sports at all.

this is why malaysian football could not run away from bribery issues.. those player have family that depend on them.. yet when management doesnt pay their salaries, how are they supposed to feed the family?? and when bookie approach them, it does look like its the only solution for them IMO.. FAM and all other state FA sux... Thumbdown

Although in this case it seems the lack of involvement of the new Govt is the cause of Perak Fa's financial problems.

But in fairness the Perak FA should have a contingency plan way before this problem surfaced. Whatever the problem, not paying your players or paying them late is a definite no-no. I'm sure the 'officials' have been paid their dues...

First Sarawak, the Perak, now its Penang's turn

Penang players not paid wages
NST 2008/06/26

WHILE admitting that players have not been paid their salaries since April, Penang FA (FAP) president Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin has urged that it not be made an issue. Pointing his finger at the previous administrators of the FAP, Mohammad Fairus said the association is trying to solve the matter. Mohammad Fairus, who is deputy chief minister 1, said the state government was trying to help settle the unpaid wages.

"This is not something new. The salary issue was inherited from the previous government and the new government is trying to help them.

"The state government is making provisions to address the issue. We are looking at ways the FA can generate income so as to be financially independent."

However, FAP vice president Gary Nair said the previous administration, led by former chief minister Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon, had settled all wages for the duration they were in power.
"Salaries were paid till March and for the arrears, we believe a solution will be found within a week. We will call for a press conference," said Gary.

Coach Mohamed, however, said he could not push his players to the maximum as most had resorted to consuming unhealthy meals. "I am aware that they are not eating right and are very down-hearted. However, I don't believe that the situation will force them to link up with bookies.

huhuhu... most of the state that failed to pay their player salaries come from state that is under opposition government!!! i wonder why!!! Hmm Hmm ... thats is why i always believed that politician should never get involved in sport management and malaysian should start football league that consists of clubs that is support financially by a company such as telekom, banks and etc coz they have their own fundings and etc while state FA need financial support from FAM.. and the way i see it since i was a kid, FAM has always bias towards state FA under the ruling of opposition party like kelantan for the last 2 decades already and now penang and perak seems to be in the same problem... FAM can go to hell!!!
