TMJ hits back at KFA

Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) club owner, Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim (TMJ) said he is not afraid to face the Kedah Football Association in regards to the transfer of Malaysia national player, Akhyar Rashid.

TMJ also said that the KFA should blame themselves for not taking better care of the player, which ultimately led to him wanting to join a different football club.

Via the JOHOR Southern Tigers official social media platforms, TMJ stated: “There is a clause in the football regulations that provides that a player can leave at the end of the season if he wants to by following certain precedures.

“When it was reported that Akhyar Rashid was looking to terminate his contract with Kedah and was awaiting FAM’s decision after Kedah ignored his request to discuss matters, we said we would only approach Akhyar when he leaves the club and is a free agent. So how is it JDT’s fault for signing Akhyar after there was an announcement by FAM that he was allowed to be a free agent?

“If today Safawi Rasid comes to me and says he wants and buyout his contract and leave, I have to accept it with an open heart.

“I can’t be upset with him or the team that wants to get the player’s services. Why? Because this means the club did not take good care of the player to an extent of him want wanting to move clubs. I can only blame myself and this club for not taking good care of a player. I will see it as a failure at the club because we would have done something wrong. Now, Kedah are blaming others.

“First, you do not understand the regulations. Second, you are blaming others for your own weaknesses.

“If Kedah want to take Akhyar or Johor Darul Ta’zim FC to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) or FIFA, go ahead.”
