Footballers left to fend on their own?

Some footballers earn big bucks, shaming the salaries of General Managers and CEOs.

Most don't.

All footballers are exposed to injuries.

Apparently, Malaysian footballers are left to fend on their own when such an episode occurs. Some have the luxury of getting the state association to sort their medical bills out while a handful are lucky to get the FA to sort out their rehabilitation process.

Nevertheless, several footballers admitted they are left to fend for their own most of the time - from meeting the doctors to their rehabilitation exercise. "We have to fork out our own money bro...." they claim.

What happened to insurance or even the Social Security Organisation (Sosco)? Don't the FAs insure or pay the Sosco of their employees? 

Nevertheless, being footballers - shouldn't they take it up upon themselves to get their own personal insurances and ensure they are not ignorant of such claims (Sosco included) as they are prone to injuries?

Should the FAs or clubs be tasked to handle such matters? Or is this simply the player's problem?

Anyone care to explain?

  1. Masalah ini memang berlaku. Pada awal tahun ini (ataukah lewat tahun lepas?), ada seorang pemain Terengganu yang kemalangan jalanraya. Bila dah keluar TV, barulah persatuan terhegeh-hegeh dakwa dia ambil berat.

    Itu yang dilapurkan. Yang tidak dilapurkan, begitu banyak.

    Masalahnya FAM suka diam. Konon nak selesai secara dalaman. Tapi tengok sahajalah, isu gaji pemain KL, berapa lama baru boleh selesai.

    Nampaknya kelab peminat sajalah yang perlu ambil proaktif dalam hal ini untuk membawa isu ke media maya dan seterusnya ke media utama.

    Sampai berapa lama FAM dan FA nak sorok bangkai gajah?

    p/s Harap pihak Ultras ambil peranan ini dan jangan hadkan kepada hal dalam padang macam FAM sahaja.

  2. I remember in one of the previous article, it was mention that a footballer union exist. They should play a more engaging role in this.

    Khaizul Azman is a good example on how players are left to fend them self, although he represented the country.
