The decision was made at its supreme council meeting, here, chaired by SAFA deputy president, Datuk Abdul Rahman Zakaria, who was the acting president previously.

Abdul Rahman told reporters after the meeting that Bung Moktar’s appointment was made after discussions between both parties before this.


"We have met with him (Bung Moktar) and he agreed to be made acting president before being legitimately appointed as SAFA president at the association’s next General Meeting.
