Syed Saddiq in favour of foreign referees

Minister of Youth and Sports Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman said that he supports Malaysia Football League (MFL) chairman Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim’s idea of forming an independent refereeing body for the M-League.

This comes after referee Suresh Jayaraman’s much criticised officiating during the Malaysia Cup final on 27 October which saw Perak defeat Terengganu.

“I support the move by Tunku Ismail. It (Malaysia Cup final) was a high stakes game. If foreign expertise (for referees) is needed, we should use it,” said Syed Saddiq during a recent interview.

The controversy surrounding Suresh’s officiating also led to the stepping down of Referee Committee chairman, Subkhiddin Mohd Salleh.
