Stop overlooking local coaches!

New Sabah Times

KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah FA has been urged to give coaches from outside the State Capital due consideration when naming their man for the State junior squads. A senior coach Faizal Yee yesterday claimed that all this while coaches from outside the State Capital have been overlooked by the State governing body when naming their choice.

 While not wanting to criticise the FA, the Lahad Datu-based Yee opined that coaches from throughout the State should be given an equal chance as long as they have the qualification to manage the State squads. He pointed out that if we are to look at the coaches (with the State teams), most of them come from around the City while those from outstation have been overlooked.

 “It has been like that for many years, and we (outstation coaches) feel neglected. I don’t know about the others but this is my view … I’m sure there are other coaches from other districts who feel the same way,” said Yee. He said that they felt very demoralised for not being considered by the FA.

 “It is very demoralising because we have attended courses and obtained our qualification but in the end we are nothing more than the forgotten men! “I can understand if it is about the State Senior squad because you need one experienced coach with vast knowledge in the game, but what about the other teams in the youth set-up,” he questioned.

 “We are not against the FA, but what I’m trying to do here is just a proposal, so that all coaches in Sabah will have the chance to play a role in the development of the game,” he added. For the record, Yee was one of the coaches in the State line-up back in the mid-90s, including assistant coach of the State squad that won the bronze medal in the Malaysia Games (Sukma).
