JOHOR BAHRU – Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) president Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim today claimed there was a conspiracy by some FAM exco members to oust him as the president.
According to Tunku Ismail who is also the Tunku Mahkota of Johor, the exco members concerned were not in the same wave length as him in the administration of the governing body for football in the country.
“As the president, I know there is an attempt to oust me but as long as I am in the FAM, such an attempt would not succeed,” he told reporters after opening the Johor Darul Ta\’zim (JDT) Football Club’s congress, here yesterday.
Tunku Ismail said the conspiracy or attempt to oust a number of individuals in the FAM leadership was not limited to the Football Malaysia Limited Liability Partnership (FMLLP) chief executive officer Kevin Ramalingam alone but such an attempt included him, too.
He was commenting on reports in a local daily today that there was an attempt to oust Kevin Ramalingam from FMLLP. – Bernama
