Malaysia hoping to get friendlies with Uzbekistan and India

Team Manager of Harimau Malaya, Datuk Subahan Kamal, is keen to arrange friendly matches with Uzbekistan and India.

The 48-year-old was quoted by Utusan Malaysia saying that the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) are looking for new international opponents on top of Chelsea and Barcelona.

He said: “We're looking for two new opponents and hope that there will be no problem getting them.

“When meeting Barcelona on August 10, we have to get better results.

“That was also my instruction to the players when they played Chelsea.

“Despite playing well, we made mistakes and caused many unnecessary problems.”

FAM President Sultan Ahmad Shah had also made it known that he was indeed satisfied with the way Subahan managed the Malayan Tigers but he is not pleased with the team’s current achievements.

K. Rajagopal’s men left for Tokyo, Japan yesterday for a week-long training stint which includes friendlies with J.League clubs Shimizu S-Pulse and Shonan Bellamare.

They will return on August 1 before the big game against the Catalan giants.
