Defender S. Subramaniam will not be able to participate in next month’s AFF Suzuki Cup.
The Kelantan centre-back injured his knee in the Malaysia Cup final against ATM last week and the injury is now deemed serious enough to keep him out of the tournament co-hosted by Malaysia.
“I'm really disappointed that I will not be playing at the Suzuki Cup,” Subra told ESPNSTAR.com.
“At the moment I am waiting to go for a scan to see the extent of the damage, but we have made the decision that I will not play next month.”
“I have been working so hard all year and looking forward to playing at the Suzuki Cup, and this is a real setback in my career.”
Rizal Fahmi Abdul Rosid, Subra’s Kelantan team-mate, has been called-up by national coach Datuk K. Rajagopal to take his place in the country’s 35-man preliminary squad, which started training on Monday.
