Malaysia: AFC Is Not The United Nations!

The secretary-general of the FA of Malaysia (FAM), Datuk Azzuddin Ahmad wants the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) to stop acting like the United Nations.

The AFC is a long-time resident in Kuala Lumpur, but president Mohamed Hammam has invited its 46 member countries to make bids in order to host the governing body.

Ahmad insists that Kuala Lumpur would rather risk losing the AFC than agree to their unrealistic requirements.

“Their demands are too excessive; diplomatic status, loans and more. They must understand they are not the United Nations," he told Reuters.

“We won’t bid for it - why should we?” Azzuddin asked, adding, “We have a sentimental attachment to the AFC. This is their home, but if they want to move we will not stop them."

Any shift of headquarters, however, requires the approval of 70% of members.

Malaysia and the AFC have been at loggerheads several times recently over issues such as land ownership and the FAM’s reluctance to postpone a visit by Manchester United.

The English Premier League side had been scheduled to visit Malaysia at the same time as the Asian Cup, the region’s biggest football tournament.

In the meantime, FAM president Sultan Ahmad Shah says that the Asian Football Confederation AFC should give due respect to the noble efforts of the late Tunku Abdul Rahman by remaining at AFC House in Kuala Lumpur.
