Former Johor Darul Takzim II (JDT) coach On Jabbar believes that the decision made by the disciplinary committee of the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) is not a fair one.
On Jabbar has been punished with a RM50,000 fine, and suspended from any football activities for 20 years, and it will prevent him from being active in football anymore.
According to Utusan, On said “Honestly I am disappointed with the decision because I was told that I will be called by the FAM to give (my) explanation and statement but that never happened. I didn’t have the chance to give my views and defend myself and they punished me already.”
On was punished after he admitted that he was guilty of punching match official Sukri Ab Rahman during JDT's game against UiTM FC last month.
However, he informed the media that he never received any official letter regarding the punishment, but he insisted that he will appeal.
“For now, I’m still waiting for the official letter from the FAM and once I receive that, I will appeal because I believe I still can contribute to the development of football in Johor, he added.
He also stated that if the FAM does not accept his appeal then his experience and contribution towards football will be wasted.
