Annuar Musa has accepted the nomination to contest for the presidency of the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM).
In a Facebook update, Annuar shared two photos, informing that he was the first to accept the nomination.
This officially puts the Ketereh MP in the race, a matter which has been widely debated off late.
“Alhamdulillah, sending in my form to accept the nomination to contest for FAM president. I am the first to accept the nomination… in the spirit of sportmanship… and love for the sport,” he said.
