MSL gets new COO

The Malaysian Super League Sdn Bhd, the marketing arm of the FA of Malaysia (FAM), has a new chief operating officer (COO). He is Kuhan Foo.

Kuhan was previously general manager of Havas Sports Malaysia. Prior to joining Havas Sports Malaysia, Kuhan was a consultant to AirAsia where he created their sports marketing programme for their Manchester United sponsorship and other sports related projects.

The 39-year old former sprinter was also the former Head of Operations and Head of licensing & merchandising at Total Sports Asia, where he also ran the Events, PR and Marketing departments.

He has led teams running events as varied as World Wrestling Entertainment’s Asian Tours, The Kuala Lumpur and Singapore Marathons, IKF World Title Kickboxing Championships, Asian Badminton Championships and also various outdoor adventure races such as the Mild Seven Outdoor Quests. Previously, he also worked for Reebok, Nike and Fila. He replaces my former colleague at the Malay Mail, Mr Satwant Singh Dhaliwal, or better known through his byline S.S Dhaliwal.

Here's hoping the new COO won't do anything 'Foo-lish'. Don't want another MAAU or is it too late.

FOOTBALL IS BEYOND SALVATION AS LONG AS THE INFIGHTING CONTINUES IN FAM AND ALL THE SURAT LAYANG STILL FLYING, EVEN THE PETER KENYON WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HELP FAM AND MSL.

Dear Rizal,

How are you? It has been nearly half a year since you left The Malay Mail or should I say Malay Mail as the new management have dropped the 'The'.
Sad to say, the quality of sports stories are not as good as when you were there.
The good news for you is that your good friend SS Dhaliwal could be making a comeback this time but as as the sports editor.
He has discussed the opening with Tony Francis recently in the past week.
As they are golfing buddies, I am sure he will be back in the game.
Does this mean you will follow him back to the 'non the' Malay Mail?

P.S. Is it true that Yushaimi is leaving for Astro?
