Fandi calls it quits at Johor Darul Takzim

The legendary Singapore striker has resigned as team manager from the Johor club after being replaced as head coach recently

Fandi Ahmad has resigned from his post as team manager of Malaysian Super League (MSL) side Johor Darul Takzim.

Despite leading Johor Darul Takzim to a third-placed finish in the MSL as well as a place in the FA Cup final, which, they lost to Kelantan, the Singapore legend was replaced as head coach recently, leaving him with team manager duties.

Fandi has expressed his gratitude to the Johor FA president for his support during this period and said his only regret was not leading the club to any silverware, which he believed will be a reality in the near future.

“I would like to thank Johor FA president Tunku Mahkota of Johor Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim for his continued support especially during difficult times, as well as fans for their support,” he said.

“My only regret is not helping JDT win any trophies last season despite trying hard to do so. However, I believe under the leadership of Tunku Ismail it will be only a matter of time before JDT become a force in the Malaysian football scene."
