Thursday, December 7, 2017

Kuala Lumpur: Tan Cheng Hoe has been appointed as the head coach of the national team of Malaysia.

Tan's appointment was announced by Football Association of Malaysia General Secretary Dato' Hamidin Mohd Amin on Thursday.



Tan replaces Nelo Vingada, who resigned as the Malaysian national team coach on Wednesday.



Vingada took responsibility for Malaysia's recent poor form in the final round of qualifiers for the AFC Asian Cup 2019, which saw the Southeast Asian side suffer back-to-back defeats to DPR Korea last month.
