Milomir adopts no nonsense approach

Daily Express

Kota Kinabalu: Milomir Seslija has certainly made his mark barely two weeks after being officially appointed as the head coach for the Sabah football team. His bold decision to drop the two foreign imports Koh Traore and Abdelfatah Safi have raised a few eyebrows especially on the former who has scored a total of 26 goals at the just concluded season.

 It may came as a surprise to many but to the inner circle, the Malian hitman's status was always on the line since earlier in the season with his lacklustre attitude in training and only the sudden goal-scoring form prevented him from being released by the management during the open window period in April. Milo did not give any clear reason for their early exit but said he has no doubt in their abilities and praised them for their professionalism.

 "They are both very good in their own right but after two weeks of assessment I realised there is a need to bring in better players to lead the team to challenge for the top honours in the coming season." "To bring the team forward, I need all round players who are not only good in attack but also help out fellow teammates defensively."

 'My vision is to draw in the crowd to fill the Likas Stadium and to achieve that I need to develop a team that can win matches as well as playing attractive football." Unlike his mild manner predecessor David McCreery, the Bosnian who has promised to instill discipline among his players as his number one priority, wasted no time in cracking the whip on those with prima donna attitudes.

 And he seemed to win over the trust of the players despite his strict no-nonsense approach and the players looked more determined and carried out the task with full commitment. He told Express Sports that his ideal team of players must exercise discipline so as to collectively achieve their long-term goal of a true blue Sabah team that would strike fear into other teams.

 "I need discipline to be maintained both on and off the pitch. Everyone should be at the right place at the right time doing the right thing and if we are disciplined more than our opponents, then I assure you that we will get the ball rolling with success on our side," he noted.
