The leading player in the FA of Malaysia is none other than Datuk Hamidin Mohd Amin.
After the exco meeting chaired by FAM President Sultan Ahmad Shah on Wednesday, it was revealed that Hamidin will chair a committee to look into the possibility of privatising the M-League by 2015.
For the record, Hamidin is the general-secretary of the FA of Selangor, vice-president of the FA of Malaysia, FA of Malaysia competition committee chairman and a member of the AFC Standing Committee.
And with the current secretary-general of FA of Malaysia, Datuk Azzuddin Ahmad having announced that he will be relinquishing his post as of May 1 and take up the secretary-general's post in the Asean Football Federation (AFF) starting on June 1, Hamidin's name has surfaced again as the most likely person to succeed Azzuddin.
Indeed, Hamidin is a much sought person in the Malaysian soccer world, although it has surfaced that if Hamidin is actually appointed as the secretary-general of FA of Malaysia, he will have to relinquish all other posts.
On the note of names for the secretary-general post of FA of Malaysia, I wonder if former Penang FA secretary, Datuk Mohd Junid Mohd Noor is also in the running. He certainly has the credentials and still very much part of the FA of Malaysia circle.
Any other names? Or the exco has already decided at the last meeting, as an announcement of the new secretary-general of FA of Malaysia is expected to be made on Monday!
