Terengganu Football Association President (PBSNT), Datuk Che Mat Jusoh, has confirmed that he would not fight for his position during the PBSNT Congress this September, which will give way for new faces to lead the association.
With the confirmation, a few names have been tipped to replace him, including the President of the state’s Youth and Sports Committee, Rozi Mamat as well Datuk Ahmad Nizam Abdul Hamid.
According to Utusan, Che Mat has admitted that it is time for him to step down after he has promised to himself and his family to relinquish the post after the 13th General Election.
"I’ve spoken about this with Chief Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Said and told him about my decision and I think it is time for me to step down and let the new blood lead PBSNT while also creating a new team for a better future," Che Mat said.
The 64-year-old has decided not to be involved with anything related to football and will spend his time with his family.
Che Mat's involvement started in 1974 and his sweetest moment would be when Terengganu won the Malaysia Cup in 2000 as well as the FA Cup the year before.
