Plan for the future

12th June, 2018


KOTA KINABALU: Outgoing Sabah Football Association (Safa) deputy president Datuk Lawrence Gimbang reminded state footballers to do retirement savings for their own benefit.

“A lifespan of a footballer is short. And it is wise to make savings for the future. It is good for them to start preparing for retirement from now.

“For instance, investing RM3,000-RM5,000 a month with ASB (Amanah Saham Bumiputera) is an ideal thing to do. Plus their EPF (Employee Provident Fund), they should have enough savings when they retire.

“They can afford to do this because some of them are earning good money,” said Gimbang.

He said these during a meeting with the state teams at the Sabah FA office in Maksak Hall in Likas near here yesterday.

During the meeting, Gimbang, who has served the association for a good 27 years since 1991, also explained the reasons why he stepped down.

He also insisted that it was done in good faith and voluntarily.

In his resignation letter addressed to Sabah FA secretary-general Datuk Alijus Sipil dated June 11, Gimbang stated: “I am happy that Safa is to be revamped for the betterment of Safa. I support such a good move and pray Sabah will be a football powerhouse in the future.

“I am, therefore, resigning as acting president and deputy president from June 11, 2018 in order to give way for others to manage Safa. I wish Safa the best and look forward to a bright future for all the local players of whom I believe have got tremendous talent. God Bless.”

Acting president Datuk Yusof Kassim and outgoing vice president Datuk Harun Ismail were also present at the meeting.
