Report lodged against Pahang FA

Pahang's Russian striker Eduard Sakhnevich (pic left) has lodged a formal complaint to FIFA and FA of Malaysia (FAM) after his services were "terminated" by Pahang FA on April 10, 2012.

Eduard insisted there was NO mutual agreement to terminate the contract.

He has, through his agent Ricky Swen Jr (pic right), lodged a police report in Kuantan alleging he was "cheated" as he believed an undated letter was slipped into the contract which Eduard signed and is now believed to be a "termination letter" by the Russian.

Interesting eh.

The Russian also claims he, his wife and two sons were "terrorised" and forced out of their house in Kuantan by Pahang FA general secretary Fuzzemi Ibrahim and "another man" who he doesn't recognise.

He has only been paid for February and March. He now wants the full payment of wages as his contract ends on Nov 30. Eduard has no idea why he was terminated despite scoring four goals in five Premier League matches for Pahang.

Ricky stressed his client only wants what is owed to him and gave the example of Australian Michael Baird who was terminated by Sabah FA but received full payment.

I gave Pahang FA an opportunity to counter the allegations. Sadly, they were not forthcoming.

Fuzzemi, when contacted, asked me to speak to assistant team manager Zainal Abidin Hassan who is said to know the "whole situation better".

And when I spoke to the former international, he said "it's an administrative matter and those sitting in the office should be answering such questions".

What's the real deal?

Pick up a copy of The Malay Mail for more details.

HD says: Can we really call the M-League a professional league? Seriously?

What went wrong with KL SEA Games?

145 gold medals.
It's the best Team Malaysia has ever achieved since the inception of the SEAP Games in1959.
The 29th edition of the SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur ended yesterday. The opening ceremony dazzled those at the stands and viewers at home while the performances during the closing ceremony yesterday jogged plenty of musical memories to many.
Our athletes, the real superheroes, brought smiles through their heroic display. They made everyday a happy day.
Kudos to the officials - from the coaches, the National Sports Institute and National Sports Council - for their hard work in ensuring our athletes perform to their best.
But it was not all memorable.

'World fashion disaster' in KL

World Fashion Week Asia 2017 ended over the weekend.

And the launch on Friday at Palace of the Golden Horses at Mines Resort City just outside Kuala Lumpur turned out to be a forgettable night.


It was poorly organised.

Just as many are trying to get over the nightmare witnessed throughout the KL SEA Games, the organiser of World Fashion Week Asia 2017 has made it look like Malaysians seem to have lost it when it comes to hosting major events and hospitality.

Here's why.

Royal protocol ignored

1. The Sultanah of Terengganu Sultanah Nur Zahirah was invited to grace the event.
    a. There was no holding room for the Sultanah and VIPs accompanying her.
    b. The Sultanah was invited on stage without anyone accompanying her there (a big NO NO if anyone knows protocol involving royalty).
    c. The event dragged on till 11.30pm, way past the cut off point of the very many events I've attended with members of the royal family present.
   d. The Sultanah was forced to walk all t…

Klang run 'illegal', says Sports Commissioner

UPDATE (Dec 11; 11.58am): Sporting events approved by Sports Commissioner's Office will be posted on the Youth and Sports Ministry's website starting Dec 14, as revealed by the Sports Commissioner in her statement today. I'm glad the last point of my observation (as per posting right below) has been addressed.


UPDATE (10.57pm): A Twitter user had sent me a link by the organiser of the Klang Heritage Marathon 2017. It states that the marathon has been "postponed to Oct 14, 2018" and that they have been victims of fake news and will lodge reports with the authorities against materials with elements of defamation or fake news. Read the full statement, posted on Dec 2, here.
