The longstanding drama between Tunku Mahkota Johor, Tunku Idris Ismail, and Kedah’s Menteri Besar, Datuk Seri Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor is nothing new among Malaysians. Over the last couple of months, both of them have been very open in expressing their distaste towards each other.
Recently, TMJ came up with a post on his Instagram Story, which has in turn caught the attention of the public. It appears that he was criticising Sanusi for his “failure” in carrying out his duties and responsibilities as the head of the government.
“You should’ve just zipped your mouth. The more you speak, the more your stupidity shows. You’ve failed in everything, from managing the state, handling the economy, sports, basically everything! This is what we call the Expert of Failure,” the JDT F.C owner wrote in his post. He shared an image of an overweight Ronald McDonald’s (which many believed to be referring to Sanusi).
Refusing to stay mum, Sanusi later took to his Facebook to issue his response to TMJ’s post. In his statement, the Kedah Football Association (KFA) president said that it’s better to be himself, rather than trying to impress others. “It’s okay to get mad, but don’t get triggered (koyak),” Sanusi captioned his post.
Prior to that, the politician wrote on his Facebook, “Why are you so bothered with another team’s coach? Perhaps it is because you can’t just ring him up as you did with other coaches!” He also claimed that the individual he was talking about would directly contact coaches and their players to recruit for his football team, without discussing it with the management.
“Whereas the agreement was made between the management of team A and team B, not with the coach. Can you see how he acts? He thinks he can just do anything, and the people will just turn the other way? It’s 2022, not 1422,” Sanusi added in his post. The Kedah MB didn’t mention any names in the post. Then again, it is believed that he had directed his jibe at the Johor Prince.
Will these two grown men ever be on the same page? Probably not.
