Football: Former Singapore star Fandi Ahmad is new LionsXII coach
FANDI Ahmad has been confirmed as new coach of the LionsXII.
The Football Association of Singapore announced his appointment on Saturday evening, ending a two-month-long search triggered by V. Sundramoorthy's decision to leave for Negeri Sembilan.
Former national captain Fandi was selected from a field of over 70 applicants, following a series of interviews and written tests.
Fandi, 51, has a coaching resume which includes two S-League titles with Singapore Armed Forces FC (now known as Warriors FC), as well as leading national Under-23 side the Young Lions to two third-place finishes.
