Alea iacta est

It means the die has been cast. Below is the confirmation of the new national coach appointment. There have been some interesting developments over the past few days, but the plan to appoint Rajagobal was hatched by two of his former team managers. How it went about, I shall reveal in a few days, after the main stream media had their say, till then congrats Raja.

The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) announced today the appointment of K.Rajagobal as the new national senior team coach. Rajagobal was previously the national Under-23 football coach.

He takes over the national team coaching duties from B.Sathianathan, who was removed as coach together with team manager Soh Chin Aun in February 1 this year.

Malaysia is currently in ranked 161 in the latest world rankings according to the International Football Federation (Fifa) website, just a one place above the Philippines.
