MALAYSIAN WIN FIFA AWARD, SINGAPORE FOOTBALL STILL IN DOLDRUMS

Dear A.S.S. Editor

Yesterday’s FIFA Awards just gave the goal of the year 2016, also known as the Puskas Award, to Malaysian Faiz Subri.

He plays for Penang in the Malaysian League, and became the first Asian to win the prestigious award. Amongst previous winners of the award were Neymar, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and James Rodriguez. Will we get to see any one of Singapore’s footballers winning such prestigious awards? Bigger question is, who watches the S-League to even notice if such goals are scored.

A Malaysian has already won the award, playing in a league that some of our local boys played in too. About time Singapore footballers rise up to the challenge. But maybe time for our own league to be more professionally run first, rather than have all these administrators who keep changing the rules every year? First world country, but cannot even run the world’s most favourite sport properly.
