Terengganu has issued an ultimatum to the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) that failure to resolve the foreign players issue will result in both the Terengganu state team and T-Team pulling out of the M-League.

Terengganu Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Said today issued the ultimatum claiming he was disappointed with the FAM and may also seek legal redress to resolve the issue.

"If the issue is not settled, there is a big possibility that both teams from Terengganu will withdraw from the M-League competition. If FAM wants to ban us for 10 years that is their problem...but it is due to lack of professionalism on their part.

"Football is played as a sport to entertain the fans, for fun, so why make it so difficult," he told reporters after a state exco meeting here Wednesday.

Ahmad said he had spoken to a number of legal practitioners and sought their views on the appropriate action that can be taken against FAM.
