Sarawak United players have urged Malaysia Youth and Sports Minister, Hannah Yeoh, to help them secure unpaid salaries owed to them by the club.
According to an article by The Star, the players expressed such hope in a collective statement.
“We stood by Sarawak United even when the club were faced with financial issues. To make a long story short, they owe us three months’ worth of salary, bonuses and claims. All of these were promised verbally and in writing as well,” said the statement.
“They sent letters reassuring us that all outstanding payments would be settled by the end of last year.
“We have entered the new year but everybody went silent. We are trying to get this story out and hopefully try to get Hannah Yeoh to intervene.
“Hopefully, through her, some changes can be made for a better future in Malaysian football.”
Sarawak United have lost their spot in the Liga Super after it failed to get the National Football License for the coming season, but had since registered to play in the amateur Liga M3 instead.
Aside from the letter, the players had also come on an interview with portal HarimauMalaya to express their plight regarding unpaid salaries by the club.
