The Kelantan Football Association President, Tan Sri Annuar Musa, has said that his team captain Badri Radzi (Piya) does not lose anything by not being fielded in the Malaysia Squad.
Speaking to Bernama, Annuar stated that taking part in international tournaments and friendly matches with Kelantan will give Piya international exposure, allowing him to gain experience.
"Whether Piya plays for Harimau Malaya or not, both him and KAFA have nothing to lose. Not only Piya, but other Kelantan players will also gain international exposure for we are playing in the AFC Cup and in international friendlies," said Annuar.
However, Annuar also added that KAFA would give full co-operation if Piya's services were needed for the national team.
Annuar also introduced two new foreign players who will be playing for Kelantan. Salim Arrache from France and Dickson Nwakaemi from Nigeria will both be fielded in a friendly against Indonesia's Semen Padang this Saturday.
