Football: V. Selvaraj steps down as coach of struggling Warriors FC

V. Selvaraj has announced that he is stepping down as coach of S-League side Warriors FC after half a season.

"I've tendered my resignation," the 44-year-old said on Sunday evening following his side's 1-2 loss to Brunei DPMM in a StarHub League Cup group-stage tie at the Jalan Besar Stadium.

"I spoke to my chairman, we agreed and I'm moving on."

A former Singapore international, he has been struggling to produce the results since taking over from Richard Bok at the start of the season.

Eight-time league champions Warriors have won just four of their 13 league matches to date and currently lie 10th in the 12-team league. Their defence of the RHB Singapore Cup, meanwhile, ended at the first hurdle when they lost 0-2 to Philippine side Global FC earlier this month.

The club have not announced who will take charge when the team meet Balestier Khalsa in another League Cup clash.

In another group-stage match played last night, Tampines Rovers defeated Tanjong Pagar United 2-1 at the Clementi Stadium.
