Singaporean legend’s 14-year-old offspring broke a wrist playing for his country.
Singapore legend Fandi Ahmad was left fuming by the treatment his injured son received whilst on international duty with the Under-14 side.
Ikhsan Fandi was part of the young Lions squad competing at the Asian Youth Games (AYG) tournament in China when he suffered a broken left wrist after falling awkwardly after a challenge during a 2-0 Group B win against Kuwait last Thursday.
The 14-year-old was immediately treated by the Team Singapore doctor and subsequently whisked off to hospital to undergo further examination before his arm was placed in a cast to heal and prevent further damage.
However, Fandi senior was said to be livid that his son was forced to spend four extra days in Nanjing, despite being in agony, rather than being sent home to his family where he could have undergone surgery if needs be.
“Any parent would be disappointed,” A furious Fandi told The New Paper. “It’s a broken wrist and they’ve kept him there for four days. “He’s still just a boy and he’s in a lot of pain.”
The 51-year-old’s fury comes just a day after he quit as team manager of Johor Darul Takzim.
