Boris claims Sarawak United have not paid him for four months

KUALA LUMPUR: Boris Kok, who plays for Sarawak United in the Super League, is the breadwinner of his family and it breaks his heart that he cannot send money home because he has not been paid in four months.

Cambodian-French footballer Boris spoke about his situation in a Facebook post today.

Boris, who is on loan from his Phnom Penh club, said Sarawak United players can barely afford to take care of themselves, let alone their families.

The 31-year-old, whose family is in France, said he was saddened by the empty promises made by Sarawak United.

"The situation is very hard for everyone. (We) have no money to pay for our homes, food, to drive our cars, to care for our families," said Boris.

"Everyone suffered a lot, but we never talk about it to the media because we love Sarawak and its fans a lot. We don't want to place blame out of respect for the club."

Timesport reported Sarawak United president Datuk Posa Majais as saying the players would get their salaries, totalling about RM2 million, in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, Sarawak United coach S. Balachandran said the players had maintained their professionalism on the field.
