Perlis out of M-League

The Malaysian Football League (MFL) confirmed that Perlis Football Association (PFA) will no longer be allowed to participate in the M-League this season.

The news was announced by MFL chief executive officer (CEO) Kevin Ramalingam who revealed that Perlis do not have enough funds to run the team for the 2019 season, according to their own financial records.

“After considering all aspects, the board of directors decided to cancel Perlis’ registration in the M-League. A decision had to be made to help the affected players and keep the M-League in order.

“MFL had given enough time and assistance to Perlis to solve their financial problems. They don’t have a proper financial plan to support their sustainability.

“Besides Perlis, we’re also looking at six other teams who are facing problems settling their players’ salaries. We had to announce the decision on Perlis first because their case is the worst … the decision on the six other teams will be announced soon,” he said.

He did however state that existing Perlis players will be given an extension of 30 days to sign for other teams despite the transfer window already being closed.
