Malaysian Businessmen Looking To Raise (Their) Profile
There are now of course a couple of rich Malaysian businessmen who own English, and Welsh, football clubs. One is at Cardiff City, the other at Queens Park Rangers.
Both have been making headlines recently trying to get Pelita Jaya striker Safee Sali to come over for a trial, something he is now doing with Cardiff City.
Now both are involved in an unseemly tug of war over the Malaysian national team coach Rajagobal with claims both are trying to invite him over for a spell.
If these gentlemen are both so keen to be associated with Malaysian football then why didn't they buy a Malaysian football club? Heaven knows the game in their home land is starved of funds. They could even get their rich mates to buy a team!
