Tunku Mahkota Johor, Tunku Idris Ismail ibni Sultan Ibrahim recently engaged himself in a heated debate with Datuk Seri Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor online. Has the outspoken Malaysian royalty found himself a new target in the form of the current Menteri Besar (MB) of Kedah?
It all started when the Johor Prince brought up the issue of salary arrears involving the Kedah Darul Aman Football Club (KDA FC) players. This was reported to have been ongoing for almost two months. It’s understood that the bad blood between these two figures exploded ahead of the “Malaysian Cup” quarterfinals match between Kedah and TMJ’s Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) FC.
Taking to his Instagram, TMJ expressed, “Are you only paying the salaries upon learning that you will be facing JDT (FC)? How long are you going to behave like this? You’re such a gun head (‘Kepala pistol’).” Clearly, Sanusi wasn’t having any of the statements left by the well-known royal figure!
Sanusi took to his official Facebook page and commented, “We are already in the month of November. Does he think we’re fighting JDT every month, from January to October? Who does he think he is, a shotgun or something? Taking shots at others in that manner?”
The former Football Association Malaysia (FAM) president later posted a screenshot of his text message to Sanusi. “Greetings Datuk. Have you finished paying all the salaries? Nice. We must take care of the welfare of the players and also the people. Well done, take care of yourself and take care of your health. If you’re planning to go on a diet, just give me a call, I can offer you a lesson,” TMJ wrote.
TMJ’s scathing remark against him on his Facebook apparently didn’t sit too well with Sanusi. He took to his social media once again to clap back at the 37-year-old, saying, “Even before you knew how to put your pants on, I’ve been active in playing football. I still play football up to this day. What diet are you talking about?”
Just hours ago, Oh Bulan noted that Sanusi retorted by throwing some shade at TMJ following the match between KDA FC and the Southern Tigers on Sunday (14th November), which ended in a 0-0 draw. In his post, Sanusi could be seen poking fun at Tunku Idris’ “diet” plan.

The latter has yet to issue his response to Sanusi’s latest post on his official social media.
