Milo: SFA backing a tremendous boost

New Sabah Times

KOTA KINABALU: Seslija Milomir sees light at the end of the tunnel for Sabah. He said things are moving quite positively for his side in their build-up to the new season, before revealing they have gained superb support and backup by the Sabah Football Association as well as his charges.

 “We are trying to change something for the best interest for the team, and we will do it slowly and steadily,” the Sabah head coach said. “And I’m very happy to note that the FA management has been very supportive of what we are doing, and I would like to express my sincere thanks to them, especially our President (Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Haji Aman).

 “They have done a great job, and the supports that I have received made my job a lot easier,” he added. Milo revealed that even the players’ salary has been paid earlier than previously, and hoping that this positive sign will continue. “The good things are happening, and this is a good indication and a good start as well. After all what we have gone through from the start of our preparations, I think we are now pretty much on the right track,” he added.

 On their recent pre-season two-week trip to Indonesia, Milo said that it has been a pretty much good trip, pointing out that it has helped instill greater unity within the team. However, Milo said it will take time for the team to gel well together, before insisting that they will be ready when the Premier League 2014 kicks off late January.

 He also revealed that he will have a squad of 23 players for the new season. “It should be enough for our campaign, albeit that there is no long term injury to any of them. Meanwhile, the FA has signed their fourth foreign signing, Marwan Mustafa Sayedeh.

 The 30-year-old Syrian plays as a striker and he could also be deployed as an attacking midfielder. He last played for Pelita Bandung Raya in the Indonesia Super League. With this signing, Sabah will have four foreign players under their ranks. The other three are Altin Grbovic of Serbia, Srecko Mitrovic of Australia and Predrag Pocuca of Croatia.
