“A total of RM9 million has been paid by the FAM to the 24 teams last night despite the FAM itself facing financial problems.”

TMJ also stated that each club that still owe money to their players will settle outstanding payments, or the clubs are at risk on facing further actions.

“I urge the money given is spent wisely by each team and it is my hope that they can all operate efficiently.”

“I don’t want to hear any more excuses of salaries not being paid because the FAM still owes them money.”

“Should there be any teams that still fail and refuse to settle any outstanding players’ salary, drastic actions will be taken,” insisted TMJ.

In total, the FAM has dispersed a grand total of RM18 million for all 24 teams in both Super League and Premier League, with each of Super League team received RM1 million and RM500,000 for Premier League teams.
