Malaysia discusses London training with Arsenal

Malaysia's RM70 million High Performance Sports Training Centre in Brickendonbury, Hertfordshire, England is expected to be completed by April following the completion of a hostel for athletes and a football pitch, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak told Bernama newsagency.

"The renovation will not exceed 10 million pounds. It is a forward base for long-term and short-term training or transit," he said, adding that the national junior football squad will likely be the first team to use the facilities in April should negotiations between the Football Association of Malaysia and the English Premier League club, Arsenal materialise. "The national junior squad will stay and train at the training centre," he said.
