Asian Football Confederation (AFC) President Shaikh Salman bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa has expressed his deepest condolences to the Myanmar Football Federation as Myanmar national team kit manager U Pyae Sone Naing passed away suddenly suffering a cardiac arrest at the age of 29 in Japan on 9 June.
The Myanmar team kit manager is, along with his team, ahead of the decisive world cup qualifiers.
“Football is built on contributions of everyone, from officials, backroom staff and volunteers, all of whom work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure the best possible environment for our players. We will always remember Pyae Sone Naing’s passion and cherish his service to the game,” the AFC president said.
“Thoughts and prayers of the AFC and rest of the Asian football family are with loved ones and friends of Pyae, MFF and Myanmar football community in this challenging time,” the AFC official commented.
The AFC will observe a minute’s silence during the Asian Qualifiers Group F match between Myanmar and Kyrgyzstan today at the Yanmar Stadium in Osaka, Japan, to honour and tribute to the Myanmar team kit manager.
Myanmar team match will start at 1:30 PM of Myanmar Standard Time, and the game will be a decisive one for the team to go through the next step. —GNLM
