ALOR SETAR – Kedah football coach Tan Cheng Hoe is only waiting for a suitable time to leave the state team.
He said there were several issues which he had to solve with the Kedah Football Association (KFA).
“I have a contract with Kedah, so I hope to discuss with them,” he said when met after the Super League match between Kedah and PKNS FC at the Darul Aman Stadium here last night.
Yesterday, KFA vice-president Datuk Badrol Hisham Hashim said a meeting would be held soon to discuss Tan’s status. Tan had submitted his resignation letter last April 1.
Tan, who had enabled Kedah to emerge as the Malaysia Cup champion last season, had been rumoured to be appointed as the assistant coach for the Harimau Malaysia team.
He is said to be the choice of Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) president Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim to assist Mario Gomez, who was appointed on March 25.
Meanwhile, Tan said he was disappointed with the 1-1 draw in last night’s match, which resulted in Kedah to drop to number two in the Super League table, although sharing 19 points with Pahang.
“It is quite a disappointment, added with poor quality refereeing which resulted in the match to be stopped a few times during heavy rain and it affected Kedah’s play,” he added.- BERNAMA
