“This is only the initial stage. What I can tell you is that I will discuss with the government and sponsors to ensure they receive the appropriate rewards.”

“I will propose to the Minister of Youth and Sports Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu to consider the appropriate amount. Discussions will also be made with other stake holders so that these doubles are given the reward they deserve,” he added.


Do you think that it is well deserved?
