“If I am Malaysia’s head coach, the main condition is, don’t disturb my work,” said former national B19 squad coach Bojan Hodak, referring to Tan Cheng Hoe’s resignation and now his name is among those mentioned as eligible to replace Cheng Hoe’s position.
The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) yesterday announced that Tan Cheng Hoe had resigned from his post as head coach of the national team.
His resignation was overshadowed by the poor performance of the Malayan Tigers in the AFF Cup 2020 which saw them eliminated early in Group B with defeats to Vietnam and Indonesia.
Following the success of helping Kuala Lumpur City FC win the 100th edition of the Malaysia Cup, Hodak’s name, which is no stranger to local football competition, was announced as Cheng Hoe’s successor to lead the national squad.
“Of course, all the head coaches are interested in handling the Malayan Tigers,” said Hodak.
“If I accept this role, I have my own conditions. I believe Malaysia has a line -up of quality players and the ability to qualify for the Asian Cup.
“Like the clubs I’ve coached before, I don’t want any interference because that’s what’s applied and I give the results to the team.”
