Ramez Dayoub will no long be part of Irfan Bakti’s Selangor FA.
The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) has released an official statement saying that the Lebanese International’s registration with the association has been cancelled in lieu of the life ban handed to him by the Lebanese FA.
Dayoub was involved in a match-fixing scandal when the Cedars challenged Qatar in a 2014 World Cup Qualifier last June.
Peter Chrappan, a 28-year-old Slovakian player, will take Dayoub’s place in the Malaysian Super League, using the same jersey and licensing number.
The 28-year-old has already made an appearance for the Red Giants’ in their AFC Cup tie against East Bengal last week.
