Secretary for Social Affairs and Culture Alexis Tam Chon Weng said yesterday that he “regrets” that the Macau football team was unable to play Sri Lanka in the second leg of a 2022 Would Cup qualifying first-round clash, which was initially scheduled to be held yesterday in the South Asian country.

Tam also said that he “respects and understands” the Macau Football Association’s (MFA) decision not to send the team to Sri Lanka for the second leg match in order to protect the players’ personal safety, while he also understood the players’ unhappiness that they could not play the game.

Tam also said the local government “could not and had not” interfered in the Macau Football Association’ decision-making process, adding he believed that the association made the decision after careful consideration. The policy secretary also urged the association to improve communication with its players before making any decisions in the future.
