Selangor head educate B. Satiananthan changed into some distance from a happy guy no matter his charges’ first win this season, a 3-2 Super League victory over Kuala Lumpur
In the publish-in shape press convention, Satiananthan dedicated a tremendous part of his time bashing rumors of his approaching substitute by former JDT and Persib Banding head instruct Mario Gomez.
“The media and the enthusiasts have all been making ready your testimonies; that if we’d misplaced today, I would be replaced via Mario Gomez. What has he achieved in Indonesia, have you ever checked? White coaches get beneficial information covers all of the time. Why are there no rumors of me being changed by way of another local teach alternatively?
“TMJ (JDT owner Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim) had stated formerly that it was their players (who brought the team achievement), my pals. Go and take a look at [Gomez’ achievements] in Indonesia. I’m now not placing him down; I’m merely declaring how the media maintains touting the names of Gomez, Bojan Hodak (Malaysia U-19 head educate) and Marcotte (former Kedah head educate Ramon Marcote). Why no longer some other neighborhood train instead? Are they no longer proper sufficient?
“The only [silverware] prevailing overseas educate Perak’s (Mehmet Durakovic), who had been at Selangor, and people hired with the aid of JDT. The relaxation? It’s the nearby coaches who have been prevailing.
“KL performed well, they’d their strategies right, and we nearly got stuck. Yusri (KL head instruct Yusri Che Lah) is doing nicely with the gamers he has, and the fans need to recognize this. Which white train goes to be employed to update him now?
“And let’s no longer communicate approximately Facebook [comments and posts by fans]. 11 12 months vintage kids are mouthing off the usage of racist phrases against me. And the treatment received with the aid of nearby coaches too may be defined as racist,” vented the previous Felda United head coach.
He also stated that he is not terrified of losing his process because of his expenses’ poor begin to the season, so long as the dismissal is undertaken well through the association.
“If I am sacked, I’m going to be a wealthy man due to the fact I expect my compensation to be paid prematurely, none of this gardening departs nonsense. That’s what I will call for.
“I instructed the gamers at halftime that it’s me who has to stand the enthusiasts and soak up the strain and now not them, so they should not be scared. I’m the educate who expects a one hundred according to cent from his players. If I see everybody slacking, it’s both they stroll, or I do.
“The control has been assisting me, if no longer you may have already seen Gomez here. I’m now not below pressure. I’m already 61 years antique; if I get the sack I’ll choose up my cheque, my pension, stay domestic and look after my children and grandchildren. But it is a remember of honor, you recognize? I’ve by no means led a crew that failed to be aggressive. My honor is my precedence,” he remarked.
While he did no longer rule out making tactical and line-up changes following what transpired throughout Sunday’s healthy, he is adamant that fan preferred veteran ahead, healthy-prevailing aim scorer and man of the healthy Amri Yahyah will now not go back to the beginning line-up.
One point of the Selangor enthusiasts’ criticism of Satiananthan has been his exclusion of the 38-12 months vintage Amri from the first eleven.
Against KL, superstar striker Rufino Segovia needed to be replaced via Sean Selvaraj just earlier than the half-hour mark due to damage, while Amri came on for the struggling Faiz Nasir at the begin of the second 1/2.
I’d advised him formerly that he wouldn’t be playing in each sport, due to methods and his age. When Rufino got here off I placed Amri on in the second 1/2 as a way to calm the team down; that’s what he is excellent at. And he performed the role well, and I’m glad for him.
“What’s all this nonsense approximately him no longer looking to play for me? If that had been actual, could he have played as well as he did just now?
“When he got here on I modified the formation. Did any of you (press) realize that? I do not suppose so. I swapped four-three-three for four-four-2 because the last appropriate Amri higher and his composure helped his teammates, and it labored,” said Satiananthan.
