@VellPaari : An appel to TMJ to continue as FAM President #kltu #jbtu #Negaraku #Malaysia

1. I refer to a recent announcement made by Tunku Mahkota Johor Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim who announced his resignation as the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) president with immediate affect.  

2. In a statement posted on the FAM Facebook page on Thursday, Tunku Ismail said the national team's ranking has dropped three places from 175 to 178 and to him, it was a very big failure. 

3. First of all, as a citizen of this country i believe that TMJ has done exceptionally well as the FAM President. Under his leadership, there were various great initiatives that was developed and launched for the football industry be it in commercial, sponsorship and youth development.

4. This is evident where according to TMJ for the first time in the history of Malaysian football all the teams have received between RM1mil to RM3mil annually, so they do not have to be dependent on government funding. Only a person of TMJ's stature and capability could have achieved this kind of success.

5. Not only that, the fact that under the leadership of TMJ our  U23, U19 and U16 teams have managed to make history when they represented the country in the highest level in Asia also clearly demonstrates the influence of TMJ in the national youth set up. TMJ is known as a person who is a visionary, values profesionalism and integrity and due to these traits FAM is now reaping the success of its youth program. 

6. The drop in our senior squad ranking of course is something that the Malaysian football fans would not be happy with. Nevertheless, I seriously believe that, without TMJ at the helm of FAM, our slide and quality of football could have been much worse and we might be worst off in terms of FIFA ranking. Because of TMJ's leadership skills, his passion and desire for success he has managed to arrest the slide to only 3 places. Without TMJ we could have probably dropped way further down the FIFA rankings than where we are now.

7. Nevertheless, we also have to remember that to improve the national senior squad takes time. TMJ has just been elected as President of FAM for about a year and to be honest in this short span FAM has achieved so much success. The money is good, teams are being well funded, the youth squads have improved and therefore it is just a matter of time this success translates to the senior squad. 

8. Therefore i call upon the FAM council and leadership team to reject the resignation of TMJ and i myself humbly appeal to TMJ to reconsider his decision. The FAM and also the football fans of Malaysia needs the wisdom and leadership of TMJ to lead us back to the glory days of Malaysian football. 

Thank You.
