“Like all male Singaporeans who are liable for conscription, Ikhsan Fandi is currently serving his National Service. While he is an important player for the Garena Young Lions and the Under-22 National Team, we recognise that National Service is vital to the Total Defence of Singapore. A formal request has been sent to Mindef through the appropriate channels, and we are in dialogue with the authorities on the matter. We hope a mutually beneficial outcome can be reached soon.”
