THE Malaysian senior football team prefers to gorge on nasi lemak, roti canai and keropok lekor rather than take dietary supplements which had instead found its way into trash bins.
It was revealed that the Malaysian football team that reached unprecedented lows at the Asian Cup, ignored conventional wisdom and refused RM200 worth of dietary supplements each. What was more galling is that the supplements were discarded unopened into trash bins in their hotel rooms.
Dr Fajcsak, who oversees the nutritional requirements of the national Under-23 football team, said Malaysians’ penchant for deep-fried and high-fat food is detrimental to physical development, especially for elite-level athletes. In fact, one of the Olympic twins in the senior team (defender Aidil Zafuan Abdul Razak) was the only player in that team who could run up and down the field in accordance to what was required at the international level ."If you look at Japanese and Korean athletes, their fitness levels are very high because they maintain proper diets. You do not see them frequenting fast food outlets at 11pm for recovery meals,"
