Terengganu head coach, Abdul Rahman Ibrahim, is determined to use the two week break to find the cure to improve his team after some poor recent displays.
Abdul Rahman stated that his players have problems with their mental strength, and the two-week break will be good for them, allowing him to to fix the weaknesses in the team so they can gain back their confidence.
According to Astro Arena, Abdul Rahman said “I can see that there are various reasons for our dipping form, such as losing focus and not having strong determination, which automatically made them lose energy.”
In the past three games, the Turtles have failed to record a win, their poor form starting in the 2-1 loss against Sarawak, followed by a 2-2 draw with PKNS FC, with the latest disappointing result being a shock 2-0 home defeat to bottom of the table Perak.
Despite leading the league earlier in the season, the poor form has dropped them to fifth in the table, with 21 points after 13 games.
However, according to Abdul Rahman he has not given up on the title yet, and he believes as long as they can improve their performance, they will still be able to reach at least top three.
“It is not too late for us to go for the top three positions in the league,” he added.
Terengganu will resume their MSL title hunt against second place team, the in-form Red Giants Selangor, at the Shah Alam Stadium.
