President of Negeri Sembilan Football Association (PBNS), Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan, has stated that there is something wrong with the football industry in the country, after watching his team’s poor performance this year.
When asked whether there are any bribery elements in the state’s football, he was certain that there is, according to Kosmo Online.
Hasan said that it can be seen in the performance of some Negeri Sembilan players that caused the team to finish at the bottom of the Malaysian Super League (MSL) which led to the relegation of the Deers to the Premier League next season.
Hasan stated: “If we really play, we can actually win. “If we look at the recent result, where we lost 5-3 to Pahang, how something like that can happen if there is nothing wrong with our football industry.
“Recently we put a 19-year-old defender against defending champions Kelantan and we did well by getting a 1-1 result.
“That’s why I said that there is something wrong with our football.” He also reminded that no players should betray the team, their friends or the states, and he already made a report to the authorities to investigate the matter.
Negeri Sembilan, who won the Malaysia Cup in 2011, finished last in this season’s MSL and currently sit in third place in Group C of the Malaysia Cup campaign.
