In Malaysian Premier League match between Kuala Lumpur and Sime Darby, some crowed had showed a banner with the message ‘Bookie detected’. Is there really bookie exist? Afterward, Sime Darby won that match 5-0 beaten Kuala Lumpur.

The claims of match-fixing in a Malaysian league fixture will be investigated by the country’s Football Association (FAM). The police would also attend the meeting along with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.

Malaysia has a long history of match-fixing issues with referees and players routinely punished.

If this true, it will gives a bad impression to our football and affect players performance. Even this issue only involve a few team from Premier League, it also possible to happen for team from Super League that will gives more impact.

Maybe salary is the main factor of the match-fixing, players on much lower salaries will lost their consideration and made a bad decision.
