Pistol Pete guns down Hammam

The late Datuk Teoh Chye Hin served as AFC general secretary from 1974 to 1978
Former referee Koe Ewe Teik replaced Lee Wai Tong as the AFC secretariat was moved to Penang in 1965. Ewe Teik was once described as "the most knowledgeable soccer figure in Asia". Pic from Power of Dreams, 50 Years of the Asian Football Confederation

FORMER Asian Football Confederation (AFC) supremo Datuk Peter Velappan, who was unceremoniously shown the door by Mohamed bin Hammam in 2006, wants the FA of Malaysia and the Malaysian Government to fight the proposal to move the AFC secretariat elsewhere. Read here. Is it worth the fight? Negeri Sembilan-born Peter is the third Malaysian to hold the general secretary's post, after Johorean Koe Ewe Teik and Perakian Teoh Chye Hin. The present gensec is Kedahan Datuk Paul Mony Samuel. I shall dwell into the dynamics and politics of AFC soon.
