KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 2 – Former Penang defender Reinaldo Lobo has reported Penang FA to FIFA after claiming the club did not pay him his salary for six months in 2017.
Reinaldo’s most memorable moment at Penang was helping them finish second in the 2015 Premier League for promotion to the Super League.
He was replaced by Penang during last season’s mid-season transfer window due to a serious injury. However, he remained with the club and served out his contract that expired on 30 November.
In a press conference on Tuesday, the acting president Abdul Rashid Ismail of the Football Association of Penang (FAP) stated that they were not aware of this issue until the former president Zairil Khir Johari stepped down.
“We are in the midst of looking for a way to resolve the matter by looking for sponsors,” Abdul Rashid said, as quoted by The Star. — PN
