Kelantan Football Association (KAFA) advisor Tan Sri Annuar Musa has expressed his disappointment that the action of ‘stealing’ players is starting to begin again.

Annuar has claimed that the action, which began a few transfer windows ago, has started again despite the season not yet being over.

Quoting from his Facebook account, he said “The action of trying to ‘steal’ players is happening again. There are teams and players trying to do negotiations without going through the club.”

Annuar also slammed the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) and questioned when the association will start the law of Financial Fairplay, and what they will do to stop this issue.

“Players, who are still in their contracts, are trying to do the same thing. A few teams with a lot of funds have started to do this unprofessional job. They are looking for greedy players and offer them high wages. There are also trying to repeat the ‘Mat Yo scenario.’ How long the FAM will let this continue?” added Annuar.

Despite the Malaysia Cup campaign not yet kicking off, there are already several clubs who are not so strong financially that are at risk of losing their star players to much richer clubs.

Some transfers, notably the moves of Norshahrul Idlan and Amirulhadi to JDT last season, raised some issues on how the deals were carried out.
