Malaysia Fretting About Safee
The Malaysian Football Association are worrying about the on going crisis in Indonesian football. Specifically they are concerned that they may not be able to call up their striker Safee Sali who plays for Pelita Jaya in the ISL.
FIFA only recognises the Indonesia Premier League and they have said that players who play in any non recognised leagues will not be eligible for national team call up.
The Malaysian FA have said that if a Malaysian club were interested in signing former Selangor striker Sali then they would allow a deal to go ahead despite the transfer window having closed.
Pelita Jaya last week lost their combatitive full back Diego Michiels after he decided to put country before club and walked out on the club, signing for Persija in the IPL.
