Perlis state government gives financial help to team

The Perlis state government contributed RM300,000 to the Perlis FA yesterday to pay the salaries of players for two months.

The cheque was handed to PFA deputy president Azahar Ahmad by Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Md Isa Sabu at the Menteri Besar's office in Kangar.

"This is the third time the state government is providing cash assistance to the PFA so as to ease its burden," said Dr Md Isa. 

He said the first contribution was RM558,000 while the second involved a payment of RM150,000.

Azahar, who is also the Perlis team manager, said the contribution would help ease PFA's  financial burden as it spends about RM150,000 a month on wages for players and officials.

Perlis, now playing in the Premier League, have yet to score a win in the five matches played thus far.

Azahar said  Perlis, who   have Lamin Conteh from Sierra Leone in their ranks, are looking to sign his compatriot  Henry Liounes  to beef up the squad.
