According to Piya, in order to avoid more conflict, he already went to the training camp with a letter and also his medical reports. He said that he will give the letters together with the reports as ordered by the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM).
Speaking to Utusan, Piya said “I admit there has been a misunderstanding with the issue. Failing to report at the training camp does not mean that I am disobeying or going against the coach or the team. I hope FAM can accept my letter as well as my medical reports and made the right call regarding this matter.”
When asked whether he is ready to lead the midfield of the national team, the playmaker insisted that he is ready to give his best for the country.
“If I have the chance to lead the midfield, I am determined to give my best to replay the faith and the belief that the coach has in me,” he added.
Piya confirmed that he has injured his hamstring and the doctor already advised him to rest for two weeks, with Datuk K. Rajagopal also confirming his absence for the clash against Chonburi FC.
