Kota Kinabalu: A house will be built for former State footballer Paulus Jimit and his family in his home town, Tambunan within 60 days, said Sabah Football Association (Safa) acting president Datuk Peter Anthony on Friday.

He made the announcement after paying Paulus, who has been in a wheelchair since suffering a stroke in 2015, a visit at his house with a group of current and former State players.

The player who was known for his thunderous shots during his heydays in the late 70’s and early 80’s is currently staying with his family at Tambunan Public Works Department (PWD) quarters.

Peter who is also State Infrastructure Development Minister added Safa will draw up a retirement plan for the welfare of all ex-footballers after they retired from their playing career.

Meanwhile, a friendly match between Sabah Tambadaus and a Keningau selection preceded by a match between ex-Sabah players and ex-Keningau players were to be held Friday night at Keningau Stadium.

The two matches initiated by Peter were staged in aid of Paulus Jimit and another former player Jelius Arurung whose vision is impaired due to kidney disease.
