Sundramoorthy appointed Lions caretaker coach

THE Football Association of Singapore (FAS) today announced the appointment of V. Sundramoorthy as its caretaker coach to lead the national team for the upcoming AFC Asian Cup 2015 qualifying match at Jordan on Feb 6.

"It is a great honour to have been approached by FAS to be the caretaker coach of the national team and I look forward with eager anticipation to the upcoming match," said Sundramoorthy, also the LionsXII coach.

"I am now discussing with the backroom team and staff the composition of the squad for the Singapore vs Jordan match and I hope to finalise the names before the end of this week."

Former national coach Raddy Avramovic left the Lions last month, and the search for his replacement is under way.

Said FAS President Zainudin Nordin said: "As mentioned previously, while we hope to finalise the appointment soon, we will not rush into making any decision. We are determined to appoint the right person for the job."
