Kurniawan hoping for Super League restart

29th May, 2020

By FRANCIS XAVIER

KOTA KINABALU: Kurniawan Dwi Yulianto cannot wait for the Super League to resume.

He said it would be great if the league, which is currently being suspended, can restart.

“It will be good news if the league continues again because this is what we are hoping for,” said Kurniawan when contacted yesterday.

“The training programme for the players at their homes will resume next week after a short break. And we want them to be ready when or should the league restart in September,” he added.

The Malaysian Football League (MFL) plans to restart the M-League in September. However, all matches will be played behind closed doors.

For the record, the M-League was suspended on March 16, two days before the Movement Control Order (MCO) was enforced to contain the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.

But the planned September restart will depend on the situation then.

And if the M-League is not allowed to resume in September, then the season is likely to be called off. At the moment, the plan to restart the season in September will depend on the Malaysian government’s approval expected to next month.

Meanwhile, Kurniawan also hoped that their request to use the field for training will be approved soon.

However, he insisted that they would adhere to decisions made by the government.

“We will continue to obey the government as health is our number one priority not only for the players but the coaches and the rest,” he added.

In another development, Kurniawan said he celebrated the Aidilfitri differently this year due to the Covid-19 outbreak that has affected the people around the world.

“I celebrated Aidilfitri together with my wife and children at home.

“However, the feeling of longing for family and friends in Indonesia has been slightly offset via digital means,” he said.
