KOTA BAHARU – A Kelantan football fan has vowed to run from Kuala Lumpur to Kota Baharu if Kelantan wins the FA Cup on Saturday.
Zakaria Yusof or Pok Ya Rambo, 65, said if Kelantan were to win the FA Cup, he would start the run from Bukit Jalil Stadium at 8am on Sunday.
He got the idea from Pahang football fan Abdul Majid Abdul Hamid, 58, who walked alone from Kuantan to Shah Alam Stadium, Selangor last year.
“I want to prove that age is not a barrier. This is a sign of my support for Kelantan,” he said when contacted here, today.
Zakaria plans to run 500 kilometres from Bukit Jalil Stadium in Kuala Lumpur to Kuala Lipis, Pahang and to Sultan Muhammad IV Stadium, Kota Baharu.
The FA Cup final between Kelantan and Lions XII will be played at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur on Saturday. – Bernama
