KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 19 (Bernama) -- Harimau Muda A coach, Datuk Ong Kim Swee has been asked to prepare a solid team for the 2015 SEA Games in Singapore.
FA of Malaysia (FAM) deputy president, Datuk Seri Afandi Hamzah said Kim Swee must get cracking as soon as the next season of the M-League begins on Jan 31.
"Harima Muda A (Under-23 squad) are expected to commence centralised training from May 1 because the Singapore SEA Games is scheduled to be held in June," he told reporters after attending a special meeting of FAM's Executive Committee here Friday.
Afandi also said the coach Razip Ismail would be responsible for Harimau Muda B (National Under-22 squad) which will be competing in the Asian Under-22 Cup.
He said after the Asian Under-22 Cup, the Harimau Muda B will be in action in the Singapore League (S-League).
"So Kim Swee will not be burdened with two teams (Harimau Muda A and Harimau Muda B). This will free him to prepare the squad needed for the SEA Games," he added.
