What the coaches said

Mano Polking

“We played well in Malaysia and now it’s a new game, we’re aiming to perform the same as we did two days ago and looking to reverse the goal that we are trailing by.

“I’m not worried about how Malaysia will play because we have a clear target to reach the final and we’re just focussing on what we can do and how we can play.

“We want to play football and I’m sure that applies to both teams.

“I’m asking that if time is lost for whatever reason then that time should be added on as we saw in the World Cup.

“It’s not me complaining and if we are winning by three or four goals and wasting time then I also expect that to be added on, I’m just asking that we be allowed to play football.”

Kim Pan-gon

“We have a good advantage from the first leg but it’s an away game and we’re fully aware it will be tough however we are mentally and physically recovered, ready and confident.

“Depending on how the game develops we have a tactical plan and then if things change we have a second plan and if they change again we have a third – we are ready for any situation.

“When I was appointed as the coach of Malaysia I made it my target to win the AFF Mitsubishi Electric Cup 2022 and we are focussed on doing well and taking this win back to the people in Malaysia.”
