After seeing his Kedah team slumped to fourth home defeat in the Super League, Kedah coach Wan Jamak Wan Hassan indicates that there will be changes to his team
Kedah produced a lethargic performance on their home turf and was deservedly beaten by PKNS FC. Helmi Youssaef, Nizaruddin Yusof and Rudie Ramli strikes were only replied by a penalty from Vedran Gerc. Wan Jamak was calm during the interview but could not hide his disappointment.
“We made a few changes coming into the match because of the injuries and suspensions. It was small individual mistakes that cost us the game.” He said.
“After this, I’m going to meet the players individually to assess their performances. By doing so, we’ll be able to analyze what’s good and what’s not from their performances so far,” he added.
The coach was also critical in his assessment of his players:“If necessary, I’ll remind them that I’m their coach and they need to get back on to winning ways. They need to (strive to win).”
Meanwhile PKNS coach Haji Abdul Rahman Ibrahim chose to comment on the lengthy break of the Super League. The league will be on break for a month and the former national coach wasn’t really pleased with it.
“I don’t prefer (the break) because we are playing well tonight," said Haji Abdul Rahman Ibrahim.
"The long holiday could cost us as we might be losing our momentum. After a month’s break, we’ll be playing every three days and that could affect the performance of the players.”
When asked about the performance of the players for the night, Haji Abdul Rahman was pleased that his players managed to get a result.
“To be honest, it was a drab match tonight," he told Goal.com
"But we are thankful that we managed to get a result here. We came here on the back of three consecutive losses. The pressure was high for the players and this win could give them (the players) a moral boost.”
