Wan Jamak wants Nazmi to stay with PKNS

The PKNS FC boss insisted he wants Nazmi Faiz to stay on despite strong interest coming from FC Ryukyu

New PKNS FC coach Wan Jamak Wan Hassan is hoping that Japanese club FC Ryukyu will not try to buy one of his key players, Nazmi Faiz, for next season. However, he has said he is not troubled by the issue and will let the PKNS president decide on how to handle the issue.

According to Sinar Harian, Wan Jamak said “I do not wish to comment on the issue. Let the president answer the question. In fact, I haven’t met Nazmi to talk about it. Just let him focus on the SEA Games first because I think that’s a much more important thing for him.”

Recently, FC Ryukyu head coach Norihiro Satsukawa praised Nazmi’s performance when his team faced the Young Tigers and was interested to bring the former SC Beira-Mar player to Japan. However Wan Jamak insisted that Nazmi is a key asset for his team.

“I’ve been following Nazmi since he was 17. He has quick moves, and his short and long passes are very accurate and he is also brilliant in creating chances for the team. He is a very important asset for us and if possible I want him to stay,” he added.

Nazmi Faiz is currently with The Young Tigers in Myanmar trying to help the national team retain their gold medal in the SEA Games. He will join his team after the tournament for preparation for the new Malaysian Super League season.
