Kuala Lumpur: The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) would like to clarify that it has not revoked the licenses of three Iraqi football clubs for unpaid salaries to players and staff members as reported in certain media outlets. 

The AFC can confirm that a letter was sent to the Iraqi Football Association (IFA) on complaints regarding overdue payables from the players of the three Iraqi clubs. If the salaries are not paid, the AFC will be forced to take the appropriate actions.
