Former Perak coach Karl-Heinz Weigang has returned to Perak, but this time as Technical Advisor for the team to help Abu Bakar Fadzim.

The President of the Perak Football Association (PAFA), Datuk Zainol Fadzi, announced that they are still going to refer to the Football Association of Malaysia on the German’s scope of work.

According to Astro Arena, Weigang said “The only issue here is whether Weigang can be on the bench with the coaches to give advice or not. We are still waiting for confirmation from the FAM.”

Zainol said the PAFA really want Weigang to give his advice and insight on the technical and tactical aspects to Abu Bakar Fadzim.

“Whether Weigang will be hired as Technical Advisor or head coach is not yet final. We have to wait until we meet (the) FAM this Monday. I can’t announce anything that is not confirm(ed) yet,” he added.

German Karl Heinz Weigang used to be Perak’s head coach from 1997 until 2001. This season Perak are performing below expecations and are currently embroiled in a relegation battle.
