KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 22 (Bernama) -- Premier League debutants for the upcoming Malaysian football league season, Kelantan United (KUFC) will ensure prudent spending for their inaugural campaign and in the process avoid the same costly financial mistakes committed by several other teams previously.
KUFC president Datuk Che Abdullah Mat Nawi said by recruiting more local talent, the team hopes to prevent financial problems, as seen in several cases where teams had difficulty settling the salaries of their imported players.
“We have been aware of this for some time, and will ensure we spend within our means and not to panic buy players,” he said in a statement released by the Malaysian Football League (MFL) here today.
Meanwhile, Che Abdullah said Kelantan United had still lots to learn after making it into professional level competition this coming season, including meeting all requirements stipulated by Malaysia League administrators, MFL.
Kelantan United will retain their Gambian player Gassama AlFussainey besides adding two more imports, Adil Kouskous of Morroco and Brazilian, Alyton Alemeo to spearhead their maiden Premier League challenge, he said.
The team was promoted to the second tier of Malaysian professional football after emerging champions of the 2019 M3 League.
