PETALING JAYA - The plight of former international Salahuddin Che Ros is not being ignored after reports of the footballer sleeping on the streets tugged at the heartstrings.
The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) and also the Professional Football Players Association of Malaysia (PFAM) are now trying to alleviate Salahuddin's burden.
Salahuddin has to live in the streets whenever he comes for treatment at the National Heart Institute in Kuala Lumpur due to his dwindling savings.
His heart condition worsened three years ago.
The Penangite had to seek shelter along the five-foot-way in Jalan Hang Lekiu.
FAM has been trying to contact Salahuddin in order to know his problems better and assist accordingly.
