thumbnail Hello,

The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) has decided to hit Kelantan player Muhammad Ghaddar with one-game suspension and a fine for his behavior in a league match

Kelantan’s Muhammad Ghaddar has been handed a one-match ban and fined RM 2,000 by the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) disciplinary committee after being found guilty of violent conduct.

Ghaddar will now miss Kelantan’s opening Group B match of the Malaysia Cup next Wednesday against neighbours Terengganu in Kuala Terengganu.

The former Lebanese international striker also faces further punishment from the Kelantan FA (KAFA) for failing to report for training with the rest of the Kelantan team on August 5.

The 28-year-old striker only returned to Malaysia on Wednesday after having promised to return on Monday, citing the death of his uncle and his marriage to a 19-year-old girl among the reasons for the delay.

Meanwhile, the committee also meted out one-match suspensions to Pahang’s team manager Datuk Che Nasir Salleh, assistant manager Zainal Abidin Hassan and physiotherapist Suhaimi Ramli for confronting the referee of their Malaysian Super League (MSL) play-off final match against Kedah, after the final whistle.

The three were also fined RM 1,000 each.
