Having promoted Tan Cheng Hoe to the post of national team head coach following the resignation of Nelo Vingada, HRH Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim the president of FAM said that the decision on the few vacant positions in the coaching staff would down to the former assistant coach.

"Right now he's the most suitable one for the job and I hope he does well. I don't have a high target for him. The first target is to change the mindset, have a winning mentality."

"It is up to Tan Cheng Hoe who he wants to bring in. He will have full freedom and support from FAM," said TMJ in the press conference.

On top of that, TMJ also expressed his disappointment over supposed player power that clouds not only the national team but also other teams within the country.
