KUALA TERENGGANU: The signs are there but Terengganu FA (TFA) president Datuk Che Mat Jusoh stressed yesterday that he will not give in to pressure to quit his post.
He said he would discharge his responsibility as the association’s president and work towards improving for the team and development of football in Terengganu.
“I do not want to argue with anyone, what’s important is how to raise the performance of the team in the Super League next season,” he told reporters here today. Yesterday, some 500 loyal supporters of the Terengganu team held a peaceful rally at Dataran Pantai Batu Buruk to voice their unhappiness with the leadership of the association. During the hour-long rally, the participants called for a revamp of the FA.
Previously, the supporters had also held a campaign calling for Che Mat to step down, putting up posters bearing his photo with a cross over it and the letters ABC which stood for ‘Asal Bukan Che Mat’ (As Long As It’s Not Che Mat). Che Mat said improvements within the association would take time and pressure from the public did not help the effort.
He also said he had full confidence in the new management to do the best for the “Turtles” next year. — Bernama
