The president of Johor Football Association, Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim (TMJ), has warned Terengganu striker Norfarhan Mohammad to pay back JDT before he starts playing with other teams.
According to TMJ, he does not wish to have players who are not committed to the team. Furthermore he insisted that everything he has done so far is for the sake of the fans, and if players feel like they do not want to represent JDT then they can leave.
Speaking to Berita Harian, TMJ said “There is no problem if Norfarhan wants to play with other teams but he has to respect and be polite. He should have paid back the contract he already had with us, and when everything is settled, he can play with his respective team.
“I am not stopping Norfarhan from playing with the other team but he or the state association who wants his service must pay RM190,000, which was received by Kelantan Football Association (KAFA) when he came here, and also a contract worth RM300,000 must also be paid either by him or the state’s association,” added TMJ.
The Young Prince of Johor also added that the best striker in the M-League for 2013 had signed a contract with JDT with monthly salaray of RM25,000, but at the same time he also signed a contract with the Terengganu Football Association (PBSNT).
Meanwhile the vice president of PBSNT, Marzuki Sulong stated that “At the moment we are trying to find the best solution for both sides. We will make announcement soon and hopefully we can resolve this issues with no major problems.”
Norfarhan signed for Terengganu after helping Kelantan to the final of Malaysia Cup 2013 as well as lifting the FA Cup trophy this season for The Red Warriors. Also known as Ben 10, he was recently awarded the Best Striker award at this season’s FAM National Awards Ceremony.
