JOHOR BAHRU – The Football Malaysia Limited Liability Partnership (FMLLP) will restructure M-League matches next season to ensure the league does not have too many breaks.
Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) president Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim said the matter was decided after taking into consideration that the long resting period would affect the players and momentum of the league.
“The schedule should be continued even though there are players who will be involved in the National team for international matches or during fasting month. If there is too long a break it will affect the players and league momentum.
“So I hope all parties will agree,” he told reporters after launching the new Super League trophy, here today.
Tunku Ismail also suggested the national squad’s centralised training be conducted two weeks before a match instead of the current training of a month before an international match. – Bernama
