Tampines withdraw contract offer for Aiff

Tampines Rovers has been reported to have withdrawn their new 1-year contract to their skipper Aliff Shafaein.

This is a result of his arrest for drink-driving and driving while suspended after he was involved in a car crash.

It had also happen hours before he captained Tampines Rovers in the Singapore Cup final and that was a major disappointing point according to Stags manager Syed Faruk.

He was quoted that as the skipper of the team, Aliff was expected to be a role model for his team mates, especially for the younger ones, and to be out in the wee hours and breaking the laws before a major final was a bad example.

So the 28-year-old could not be forgiven by the club management and the club acted as they did.

It was a double blow as Syed Faruk admitted the Protectors were also looking at Aliff for the new season but have withdrawn from the race after the incident.

Still, the Stags manager hoped the midfielder can find a club willing to accommodate him for the season as every person deserve a chance.
