Kelantan FA’s adviser Tan Sri Annuar Musa said that the club has paid at least RM 1.5 million in salary they owed to their players.
According the Tan Sri Annuar, they payment was made to Super League, President’s Cup, and Youth team players.
“The payment was outstanding wages of players for the months of May and June plus advance for July.” Bernama quoted him as saying.
The Red Warrior’s adviser also hoped that the payment would help to ease the burden of players, since Hari Raya is just around the corner.
Kelantan FA have been engulfed in a financial fiasco since early last year, and they have been receiving backlash from every corner for not being able to pay their players and coach.
However, it is not clear if they have paid up their former coaches and import players.
Former Kelantan import Jonathan McKain and former coach Mohd Azraai Khor are amongst those who have slammed the club for poor management and unpaid wages.
Commenting on their transfer ban, Tan Sri Annuar Musa said Kelantan FA will make another appeal to the Football Malaysia Limited Liability Partnership (FMLLP) and the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) to allow the registration of French forward L’Imam Seydi.
“We will discuss and submit an appeal because we have already signed an agreement with the player last month and rejecting the signing would have severe implications to us.” Tan Sri Annuar added.
FMLLP imposed the transfer ban on The Red Warriors after the club was pelted with numerous complaints and accusations about unpaid wages by former players and staffs.
