Fandi leaves JDT; Shahrizat returns to Putrajaya

The Malaysia Cup drama has started, even before its kick off tonight.

Former Singapore international Fandi Ahmad (pic) submitted his resignation letter as the Southern Tigers team manager on Saturday. His decision was accepted by the Johor FA.

What led to Fandi quitting the team? Was he slighted after he was removed as coach? Did he have actual say in the team?

Fandi said he has "no regrets" leaving the team and did not rule out the possibility of coaching another Malaysian team in the future, as reported in Mailsport today.

Meanwhile, here is the history of the Malaysia Cup and the list of past winner.

While Fandi leaves, former minister Shahrizat Abdul Jalil (pic below) returns to Putrajaya as she is set to be appointed as a special adviser to Prime Minister Najib Razak.

She made a similar return during former Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's tenure in office.

Apparently, "tawar hati" with The Malay Mail Online's headline which read 'Scandal-plagued Wanita Umno chief Shahrizat to advise PM', she will be given full ministerial status. Najib, however, kept mum over her Cabinet post.

She was effectively removed from Cabinet in April 2012 after her term was not renewed during the height of the RM250 million National Feedlot Centre (NFC) scandal involving her and her family members.

The NFC scandal hit media headlines two years ago when the Auditor-General’s 2010 Report highlighted the failure of the NFC project in achieving its target of breeding 8,000 head of cattle in Gemas, Negri Sembilan, in 2010, besides noting National Feedlot Corporation’s (NFCorp) management failures, as reported by The Malay Mail Online.

HD says: Macam-macam ada...


  1. Fandi left JDT - to be expected.

    Shahrizat appointment - a positioning move gearing towards Perhimpunan Agung UMNO?

    p/s Most probably not discussed before : do you agree that wide gaps between JDT local players salaries has become an issue within the team?


  2. Will coach Azmi still be JDT's coach for JDT's next game (after they loss to PKNS last nite), Haresh?
