There was an air of excitement prior to the start of the press conference at the VIP Lounge of the Jalan Besar Stadium on Tuesday as a huge crowd of reporters eagerly awaited the unveiling of the new LionsXII jerseys for the upcoming 2014 season.
The event commenced with the Football Association of Singapore president Zainudin Nordin making an opening address, followed by StarHub's chief marketing officer Jeannie Ong's short speech. But the loudest cheers were saved for last when local football legend and LionsXII head coach Fandi Ahmad took the mike.
The 51-year-old recently returned to take charge of the LionsXII after a seven-year exile" and emphasised the need to develop players for the national team at the pre-season press conference.
