B. Sathianathan stressed that winning the charity shield is not their main priority. In fact, he wants the match to be a platform to see whether his team is capable of putting up a fight in this year's Super League.
The Malaysian Armed Forces (ATM) head coach, said to Sinar Harian that whether they come out as winner or a loser in the match, it does not matter to him. What matters to Sathia is to test his players of their capabilities and their preparation for Super League.
"If we lose, no problem, but if we win, it will be a huge motivation boost for us to keep giving our best in the Malaysian League."
ATM is preparing to face champion Kelantan in the first match of the season for Charity Shield Cup. The game will be played at Shah Alam Stadium.
