Saifuddin's name being bandied for FAM's sec-gen post?

Another name has been bandied around for the post of the secretary-general of the FA of Malaysia.

Remember Mohd Saifuddin Abu Bakar, the former assistant secretary general of the FA of Malaysia till 2009.

He left FAM to take up a job offer with a private organisation based in the Middle East in June 2009.

Saifuddin had previously worked with the FAM for eight years as the head of the competitions department before taking up employment with the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) as an officer in a similar department for four years.

Currently, he is Oman FA Pro-League technical consultant.

Is there any truth in Saifuddin being considered?

All will be revealed when the new secretary-general is expected to be announced on Monday to replace Datuk Azzudin Ahmad who will relinquish the post on May 1 and take up appointment as secretary-general's post with Asean Football Federation (AFF) on June 1..

The favourite for the job is Datuk Hamindin Mohd Amin, the secretary-general of FA of Selangor, the vice-president of FA of Malaysia, FA of Malaysia competition committee chairman  and member of AFC Standing Committee.

Another name which comes to mind who could be considered is former Penang FA secretary, Datuk Mohd Junid Noor.

Lets us wait for Monday, to see who is named to take up the hot-seat. Probably, there will be no surprise in store!
