MAKING THEM PAY

DEFENDER Baihakki Khaizan and right-winger Ridhuan Muhamad have each been fined $750 for keeping the national football team waiting on the bus that was to take them for their crucial Asian Cup qualifier against Jordan last month.

In a statement released by the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) yesterday evening, the two players were found guilty by the disciplinary committee (DC) of breaching Clause 8(i) of the FAS Code of Conduct & Professional Ethics for National Players.

According to the charge, Baihakki and Ridhuan failed to be punctual for the departure of the team from the hotel at 3.45pm on March 3 for the match against Jordan in Amman by turning up to board the bus seven minutes late.
