thumbnail Hello,

Fifa will send investigators to Malaysia next week upon suspicions that two men are involved with the alleged global match-fixing network

The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) has responded to claims that two Malaysian citizens are involved in a match-fixing syndicate, lending its complete cooperation to Fifa.

Fifa officials, led by head of security Chris Eaton, are expected to arrive in Malaysia next week to meet with a number of people who may have more information about the allegations.

FAM general secretary Datuk Azzudin Ahmad told asiaonenews.com that he is not aware of the intricate details involved but is willing to find a solution.

"We wrote to Fifa over the alleged match-fixing scandal last week after reading about it," Azzudin said.

"We will, of course, assist Fifa in whatever way possible. As for now, we cannot act based on assumption."

It has not been confirmed whether the investigations involve Malaysia's domestic M-League, but it has been revealed that league club Johor FC yesterday released four players for suspected match-fixing.

Fifa hopes to discover some leads in Malaysia that will make the global ties more recognised, but Azzudin is confident that the FAM is in control of corruption in football.

"We have not received a single report despite a lot of talk about it," he said.

"We have been making efforts to make affiliates aware of corruption in football through regular forums."
